Here is the trio enjoying a spring day in the pool.
They look very happy.
I need my husband to build me a coop for my ducks. Can you guys post some pictures of ya'lls to give me some ideas? I have a White Crested with leg problems, so I also need some ideas to keep it easy for Nemo to get around. Thanks so much!
We need a duck house too. For now they still sleep in the garage in their old wooden brooder. I picture a sort of dog house, low off of the ground, one nest box on the floor of the house and a wide ramp going up. We will also put a lockable door or make the wide ramp fold able so we can lock down for the night.
Awesome! This will be great!
Just got 2 week old Pekins a few days ago...
Too cute! Not very social, though. Any tips? Here they are;
Yep, they're fine. Pekins are a meat breed so they are a little on the big side.
And yes, it is very important for them to have a waterer that id deep/big enough for them to dunk their bills and heads, of they might end up with an infection. HOWEVER you don't want it so big that they will try to swim in it and get chilled.
First time duck owner here, too. Excited for this adventure!
Thank you, Miss Lydia! I found another that was similar, but it didn't have as many photos. Also, I love your set up. It's beautiful.
moe, Larry, and kurly..
I forgot how fast they grow. My baby is only 2 weeks old and she already weighs 3/4th of a pound. I bet she'll be bigger than my mature call ducks by the end of the week.
