    Thank you! I've been searching high and low for niacin but can't find it anywhere. There is a vitamin store near my school that I plan on checking tonight.

    I also had no idea about the treats. We'll hold off on those until they are older and outside. I had just been reading about it being a good way for bonding and blindly followed suit. :(

    I do have a digital thermometer somewhere. I just need to dig it out.

    Ducks are seriously a whole new ballpark. I'm way more accustomed to rodents. :D

    I just got off the phone with the TSC people and they insist it's a Pekin…… I don't really believe them.

    Well I don't blame you for not believing them some have posted this year that TSc had no idea what breed of ducks they had, but I do know some went specifically for Runners when they had them there, The store probably didn't know it though.

    Hello everyone, I'm new to the group. I am a new Pekin owner. My guys are 2 weeks old now. Beezus and Daisy are their names. I also have 6 chicks. I am amazed at how quickly the ducks are growing.

    Yeah, that was supposed to say "How long do" not "how do." I wasn't going to put them out there because of the brooder thing. I was asking so I can figure out the deadline my DH has before their pen needs to be built. I have a temporary pen made for them to go on nice days that get to 65-76 degrees.

    I would have to agree. It looks like its standing more up right to be a pekin

    [​IMG] My TSC was suppose to get a batch of Pekins in. They opened the box marker Pekins and it was full of Rouens/Mallards. Luckily that store most of the workers have ducks and chickens, so they knew they were not Pekins.

    Every time I go in I offer to take care of the chicks and the ducks free of charge for them. The manager laughs and mentions the rather large pocket of my jacket could hold a "few dozen chicks with out anybody noticing"

    Yes, he watches me closely, because he knows I would take the entire tub and run. lol

    Maybe he's hinting he'd like for you to take a few home [​IMG]

    My pekin kurly has this bruising on her bill and I'm not sure how she got it. Is there something I need to give her to help with it or...? I'm new to ducks, pardon all my questions.
