They’ve finally arrived and I honestly feel more inept than I did the day I brought my daughter home from the hospital. I’ve gotten what I *believe* is everything I need but I desperately need someone’s affirmation that I’ve got it all (specifically nutrient/niacin intake). I’ll post pics of supplies to save on typing descriptions. I’ve got poultry/duckling friendly feed crumbles with 20% protein. I’ve got vitamin/electrolyte supplements. I’ve got bedding. I’ve got 24/7 water and feed available. I’ve got a heat lamp on one side of the brooder, allowing a cooler/shaded half, with a thermometer reading 90 degrees Fahrenheit. I held them and introduced us humans once they got here but I’ve otherwise been leaving them alone (hands off) so as to not add any additional stress to their recent trip. I want to make sure I’m doing it right. I’m mostly concerned with ensuring they have the niacin needed for their growth. I was unable to find niacin at the local Walmart, Rural King or Tractor Supply but I also can, if recommended, head to my local CVS to look for some. I looked on Amazon (my preferred method of shopping lol) and all of the niacin were flush free which, to my understanding, is not what was preferred. I’ve read Metzer farms’ niacin info, various posts here on BYC and elsewhere, and I’m not fully clear on how much/often they need niacin supplements (goes into science/math/etc. units of measurement and I’m not that sorta gal). Is keeping their waterer filled with electrolytes (that has the niacin in it; see pics) enough for their needs? Or Do I only need to give them one gallon a week of electrolytes? And I know ACV is largely recommended for ducks/chickens but I’ve (admittedly) never given it to my adult Pekins so I would have no idea on necessity/frequency of ACV for ducklings. They arrived this morning and in their waterer right now is one gallon of the Sav-A-Chick electrolytes water. They currently have the Purina Flock Raiser crumbles in their feeder. Attaching pics of food and vitamin/electrolytes as well as a cute video of the girls’ introduction to my husbands’ massive hands’ (no joke, his hands wrap all the way around my grown female Pekins... it’s ridiculous LOL).
