    PoultryAddict 1 Out Of The Brooder

    Hullo! I'm a new duck parent, my 2 ducklings ( Cayuga and Welsh Harlequin) are coming from metzer farms in about 2 days, and I'm a experienced poultry owner but these are my first ducks! So I have some questions...

    question num 1.) Will 2 ducks and 3 chickens work in a 10X by 10X foot run with a bungalow coop attached? This is what I have for them...

    question num 2.) My brooder is set up in my bathtub with a standard heat lamp with red bulbs, bedding is pine chips, and on the other side is a small washcloth with a standard one quart chick waterer and feed bowl on top of the washcloth so they don't accidently consume any shavings. Anything wrong here?

    question num 3) (sorry for the questions)

    question num 5.) I'm feeding DUMOR organic chick starter with a minimum of .90 lysine, should I add anything here?

    Thanks! [​IMG]
