Our beautiful 9 month old muscovy duck has just had her first duckling hatch with more expected in the next day or so. We have been hatching quails and chickens in an inubator for a few years and know what to do food/water wise with them. Very uncertain what to do regarding food and water for these ducklings. They are in with chickens but we have sectioned off the area she decided to nest in a few days before due date as I'm unsure if the chickens will try to harm the ducklings and not sure if her mate/drake will also try to harm them. The nesting box is up off the ground so I have attached a ramp so they 'might' be able to get down. After some advice, tips and reassurance that these ducklings will be ok. Not use to having a natural mother care for her own.
