I've just ordered 2 ducklings from a hatchery near me, I'm getting 1 cayuga and 1 peckin. I've never had ducks or any bird ever and i'm super excited to try it out! I've been doing some research on how to keep them warm and I was wondering if you all could give me your opinion and advice. I've seen online that you can buy a stuffed hand puppet and put a hand warmer in it and not use a heat lamp. They say that the ducklings will snuggle up to the puppet and be warm enough. Does any one know if thats true or if i should just buy a lamp? Also Do I need to keep the ducklings in the house for a little while or is it ok to put them outside in their coop? When should I introduce the ducklings to swimming water? Will ducks really eat wood chips that I have in flower gardens? Sorry if these questions seem stupid, like I said I have no idea what i'm doing and want to have an idea whats up for when I get the ducklings mid august! Thanks for all your help in advance!
