Just wondering! I only have 2 and they are a lot of work
2 new babies! Not much work...besides cleaning
I only have 5 right now but I plan on rebuilding my flock up this fall.
Hmmmmm. Lets see. 5 adult runners and 11 runner ducklings! Unfortunately, I have been unable to find anyone who is interested in the ducklings. I was only going to keep 4 but............
I have three mallards, three pekins, two rouens, and a mama mallard and her six babies that aren't mine. I also have three cayuga babies and one mallard baby in the house, with plans on getting Ancona's in the near future.
When they get older it will be easier. (at least for me it is)
I have 7 angels! 1 Runner girl, 3 Buff girls, and 3 Swedish ducks- 2 girlies and 1 big boy.
I have 8 call ducks - other than clean water daily (drinking and swimming) they are not much more work than my chickens
I have 5 girls. A Khaki Campbell 3 Khaki Campbell/runner mix and a Pekin. I dont think they are any harder to take care of then chickens except the mixes when I brooded them. Whew were they stinky!!! I was glad to get them outside
How many ducks you ask...........well.....a adult pair of rouens & there offspring 6
a pair of saxony
oh ya & 2 embden geese
&........43 chickens.....I think that's it...........for now
Goin to a big sale this Sunday.....hummmmm
Around 80 right now give or take. New hatchlings so I can be off by 1 or 2. LoL
Pools all get filled in the morning, dumped and refilled in the afternoon. ( lunch time) 3 auto waters around the yard, water buckets that get dumped and refilled twice a day. All brooder pens have water pans that are changed 3 times a day since they don't have water station choices.
Adults are fed at night when put up. Babies are fed three times a day, so far this works at keeping their feed bowls full. The call duck hatchlings get food take away as I head to bed. Had one eat too much and not clear the food out over night. So now they get water only over night.
7 geese, 2 peafowl, 3 goats, 40+ chickens, quail, and rabbits with babies.
