I've been so caught up in hatching my one poor little duck that I guess I have neglected to think that they may require different brooding practices than chicks.

So... do you brood ducks the same as chicks or... ??

Yep its the same as far as i can tell. I've raised over 20 ducklings and i treated them just like the chicks except they had to get a different water bowl.

thanks for the info.

I just wondered because someone I know bought some Mallard Ducklings at the sale barn on Memorial Day and they were maybe a week old and they raised them without a heat lamp... They are all doing good.

I didn't know if the ducks didn't recquire the heat lamp as long or not.
