My ducklings are lethargic!

    First day ducklings arrive let them rest and recoup from their trip.[That will also give you time to watch for any problems] Then let them meet your only duck and see how it goes. Hopefully they will hit it off great but since your duckling you have now will be older and stronger you'll need to watch in case the older starts picking on them or stepping on them. If this happens then you can make a brooder so that they can still see each other but older can't get after the younger ones. Hopefully it will just go smoothly they will all fall in love with each other.

    Great news about your son too. :thumbsup

    Thank you! I have boxes as brooders and then I got those octagon pet kennels for when they get bigger. With the way our weather in Ny has been they will probably stay inside with us until middle of May.
    As a side note our cat has been peeking in on them alot. Almost like he is concerned, lol.
    He was mad last night because I put him in his kennel. I love him, but I don't trust him. He is a cat after all and has kitty instincts.

    We will be getting them out soon to clean the brooders, I will post pics then.

    They do do the heat packs, but I don't know about the gro gel. I will call them later and ask. Thank you!
