In the Brooder
- Apr 19, 2010
After successfully raising Silkie chickens for over a year...my husband agreed to ducks. We have only 2 right now because I was afraid of failing. My 2 babies are very happy in their warm water trough in the basement however, they can't stay there forever. We have a natural pond on the farm, very close to the chicken coop and I plan on building a "house" of some sort for Bender and Frye (aka the babies) in the next few weeks. What is the best type of structure for them? I have searched for examples but had little success. Any tips will be greatly appreciated. Oh, and the farmer I got my jewels from says that they are Buff Orpington ducks.
