Yes, the ducks do grow fast, and they are messy. I have to clean the brooder everyday.

I need to get a move on and get the coop and run done so I can put them out.

Quote:I'm really not sure what kind of ducks they are. We are just waiting for them to get their feathers so someone can tell us what they are.

/quote/ I have to clean the brooder everyday.

Just once a day?
I have to scoop up the wet litter around the waterer a couple of times a day
I was warned about the mess, but jeepers! I would have sepererated them, but my other brooder is being occupied with my chicks that I hatched-and it's high time they go outside too, but my other coop is being occupied by bottle calves...


The ducklings are so precious though, I just fell in love with them!

They are so cute at this age. Still have some of their fuzzies.
The ducks are cute too. I considered getting some this year, but I think I'll wait until I have seperate brooding areas since they are so messy.

I learned my lesson last year - I had 2 ducks and three chicks - and what a wet stinky mess those ducks made of the brooder !! now when my duck eggs hatch I am going to get a second brooder going for them - never mix them togather again LOL
