I got my ducklings 8 going on 9 days ago and they are still indoors, but a family member mentioned something to me today that has me extremely concerned about when it comes time to move them outside (if I have to I WILL buy those danged expensive diaper harnesses til I figure out how to keep them safe!). They were talking with a coworker about the little ducklings, and the coworker asked if we'd lost any and said something about buffalo gnats? I asked what they said about them and what the danger is etc and apparently they didn't elaborate. What the heck are those and how do I keep them away from my ducks or prevent them causing them any problems? Is there any other surprise thing I should know about being a first time duckling momma? I can't afford any losses as I only have 4 right now and not to mention I am so darned attached now that these are forbidden as far as culling for food goes (Yeah yeah judge me lol!). Don't get me wrong I researched my hiney off, but I never knew anything about spraddled legs, crop problems, and certainly nothing about bugs or that those were things I needed to research. I love these little poop machines and want them to be healthy!
