Okay.. I know chickens pretty good, and I've had a few ducks (long long ago) but... NOW I have just ordered my (always wanted) Runner Ducks; 2 F/1M. I am planning on putting them in my very fancy brooder, built into my coop (pics on here somewhere! with shavings, a heat lamp, and... basically the same set up as chicks.. except I'll make sure they can dip their little heads in water. What else, y'all???? THANK YOU!! I kind of want to know WHEN they can be released to the yard (small area w/pond) - is it like chickens.. they're ready when they're feathered out, or different? (I usually read like crazy on EVERTHING I do..... but got a little 'crazy' this time) Now that they'll be here in two days, I'm freaking out a little.
