    Well my 25 chicks are coming thru-fri hopfully if the valcano is calm. So I went to the feed store to get some supplys and get brooder rdy for them. WEll I coudln't help it they had baby turkeys and ducks!!!! So I came home with 2 of each hehe. 2 mallards and 2 broad breasted whites.I had them together becuase the lady said icould but had to seperate them becuase the turkeys were picking on the ducks really bad this is day 3 and they are doing awsome!!!

    Nope I have never had...chickens, ducks , or turkeys LOL all new to me so ANY advice would be greatly accepted the lady did tell me I couldnt have them with the chicks becuase the chicks can not eat the feed I give the ducks and turkeys. Thankfully my husband was raised around them. but I am main careprovider so I have been doing research. Kindof taking it day by day. I do enjoy them it funny to they in our masterbathroom and I can totally tone out the peeping at night I thought I woudln't be able to in a way the peeping is quit peacful.

    yes yes ducks are VERY MESSY! I gotta clean the brooder out near the water TWICE DAILY!!! [​IMG]

    they are so fun though, they snuggle on our chest nibble our fingers and hair and shirts, and they are so funny to watch in the bathtub swimming around.

    Quote:I wish ours were $3.50!! They are $5 each here! I have one baby from a hatch that I messed up, and was thinking of getting it a buddy. I need to, cause the next hatch isn't due for 3 weeks!
