    My duck has been setting for 31 days and I should have ducklings soon. What are good food and water set ups for the baby ducks?

    I moved all mine into a brooder... still moving them as they hatch [​IMG] . I just have a small waterer & a porcelain cat dish with food in it for them. The heavy dish is hard for them to tip and I usually only have to refill the small waterer once a day. I have 20 ducklings & 7 chicks in the brooder right now, but just sold some ducklings yesterday.

    I plan on leaving mine with mom - any special recommendations for this?

    You will have to change food and water more, but you can use a bigger waterer, as long as the babies can still get in it to drink.
