Mine are due to hatch Monday and I'm very nervous. DBF's runner ducks are two weeks old and as fast as he puts the food and water in the brooder, they suck it down. He is home all day to care for them and gives them food and water constantly. My problem is I work all day. If I fill the feeder and waterer before I leave in the morning and they empty it that fast, then what? How much food/water/what sizes should I get for 8 (hopefully) ducklings to make sure they don't run out? And if they run out, will they be ok until I get home? I'm so nervous.
