So the ducks came today. I have them in their house, its the house their previous owners built for them. I have large bowls for food and water. They've already dirtied the water. They are funny little things. So got good shelter and food solved. Now the questions... I have 4. 3 girls 1 boy. 1) are fertilized eggs ok? I have seen this asked of duck eggs but never paid attention as I was not planning to have ducks. Ever. 2) what treats? I understand bread is a no-no. But as my chickens are super spoiled, I don't want to leave the ducks out of the treats. 3) nest box? Would a low sided milk crate work? 4) I am using leaves for the run area for the winter. Can I use them in the duck coop too, or should I use straw? There are leaves in it now, about 5 inches deep. 5) how do you keep the water bowl clean? I think that's it for now. I have no idea what type of ducks they are, but they sure are funny. So much personality. I already have a plan for their pool for next year. Thanks so much for the help.
