We brought home three 8 wk old Muscovy babies yesterday. This is our first experience in raising ducks. Our intention is to integrate them into our existing flock of 27 chickens. Just as we did two years ago when we started out with two chicks, we are researching everything, learning as we go with the ultimate goal being the expansion of our group of ducks. If anyone can add any helpful hints regarding feeds, integration or even help in identifying/sexing them it would be very much appreciated. We are rookies but are in the process of turning our 90 acre farm back into the functioning homestead that it was when my grandmother was alive. The woman that sold us the ducks said she gave her ducks choices between scratch and cat food? I've read that they need high protein diets but I want to make sure that we do everything the right way to ensure that our ducks are as healthy as they can be.
