I am expecting ducklings to arrive on Wednesday of the coming week, three Welsh Harlequins. This is my first time brooding ducklings. I hatched 9 of 12 chicken eggs successfully last year with my students. Now I am getting ducks of my home as day old ducklings from Metzer farms. Below are some photos of my brooder set up. It is made from a 2'x3' plastic bin. I cut out sections from the lid and duck taped (get it, DUCK tape, sorry) and zip tied on some hardware cloth to let some air in and keep our house cats and dog out. I put some shelf liner on the bottom but I also have some pine shavings to go on top of it. The roll of shelf liner was large enough that I have another spare piece. I got a broiler pan to put the food and water on top of. Food bowl is a terra saucer. Water dish is currently a shallow plastic container but I am not sure if that is going to work very well so I am open to suggestions. Any tips/tricks/suggestions to make this work well and easier to keep clean? There will also be an Ecoglow radiant heater for warmth at the other end. I have some unmedicated turkey grower feed (20% protein), some brewer's yeast to add niacin and I figured I would cut the turkey grower feed with oats when they were ready for less protein. I want to make this as easy and stress free as possible because my sister will have to babysit them Thursday-Sunday, I will be out of town for a funeral. Thanks!
