I am thrilled to see that my little Rouen Lucy (only a year) as hatched out 2 so far ducklings in the last 24 hours! One looks like a pekin while the other a rouen mix I am so thrilled to have such exciting news from having just recently lost 4 ducks of my flock! Now I have never had ducklings all my ducks I aquire as rehoming adults that people don't want anymore ! So I need some guidance! I am enclosing them in a area but am wondering: how much water can be kept in the pen? What feed can I use for both babys and mom? I will take a picture of my set up as there 'brooder' and let me know if its safe for now? I am. Removing the drake and 3 other hens as they were sharing the shelter with the Lucy since I assume they may attack the ducklings????? Ahhh just so excited! Please anymore advice would be grand! OH and I will post pictures if she will allow me hehe she's very much in mommy mode! UPDATE!!! Okay so this is what I got set up for mom and babys.. She so far as 2 pekin and 2 rouen Mixes will see what happens with the rest of the eggs over the next 2 days. And this is all I could get for pictures of the little guys. As for mom showing them food and water how long they can not have these 2 items while mom sits?????
