    [​IMG]Hi I bought these beautiful khaki Campbell's a week ago. I don't know how old they are and when they can go out side. I have 15 chickens so was going to put the ducklings in with them when ready. Also I'm feeding then chick crumb should I feed then growers yet. Thank you for anyone's help most appreciated :)

    They look to be about 3-4 wks old to me. You'll want to feed chick starter/grower until about 8wks I think. Then switch to a grower/finisher.

    Hello, these are my ducks, a Welsh Harlequin(Cheepers) and a Pekin(Sunny) and I was hoping someone could help me pin an age on them. I know they are older than 4 weeks, their feathers are just starting to come in, but I don't think theyre 8 weeks yet. This picture was taken today.
