I've done ducks for years. I LOVED my ducks. But I have had so many predation problems and a theft. One day I will have ducks again--I need my lovely little Welshie back. So cute, so affectionate. My local feed store is getting Rhode Island Red and Plymouth Rock I'm getting 4 total on Jan 20. I need help figuring out when they need what. I know to start them at 95 then 5 degrees less every 7 days. I need help figuring out when they should go in each cage. I am in northern New England. April averages around 58 degrees, which is when I hope to put them out. They will be near the house and around 8-10 weeks old. We keep the house at 65 Coops- Coop 1 (indoor, heat lamp) 16x18 Tupperware bin Coop 2 (indoor, heat lamp) 20x20x8in mesh cage Coop 3 (indoor, no supp. heat) 30x30x12in mesh cage Coop 4 (outdoor)+ free range 2 story 30x60 with an enclosed upper home (nesting box) Coop 5 (outdoor, coop 4 goes in)+ free range 8 foot x 8 foot walk in Supplies: (need) Food suggestions--I am guessing Blue Seal Home Fresh Medicated Chick starter https://blueseal.com/product/?id=129&species=Poultry&search=true Save-a-chick Probiotic/Save-a-chick Electrolyte (for the ducks I alternated these in supplemental waterer every other day) How long should I do this for?
