    Do any of you put little pond minnows or crawdads into your ponds for the duckies?? If so how do they do with them??

    Quote:Key words there. They would most likely not make it through the first 20 minutes without being devoured.

    Quote:That's something I have been wondering. On Nettie's list of treats she said to wait until 6 weeks... I'm not sure about the little ity bity ones, though! [​IMG]

    I would wait until they are 12 weeks old. 8 weeks is probably fine, but again I prefer to give them the proper diet until they are completely feathered out. Just treat them with peas until they are old enough.
