About 10 weeks ago I got 25 chicks from a hatchery. In the first week, we lost only 1. About a week ago, we lost the runt during a cold streak. Otherwise, we still have 23 of the 25 left after 10 weeks. Last week, we got 25 ducks shipped. One was dead upon arrival, one had a crooked neck, we have lost two since and are at 22 only a week in. We are doing basically the same thing to raise the ducks as we did with the chicks. The only thing difference is the hatchery we bought them from. This is my question: Which experience is more normal? Did I get a bad batch with the ducks? Pick the wrong hatchery? Or did we just luck out with the chicks? This is my first time raising chicks or ducks and while I expect some deaths, I don't really know what is considered normal. I also thought ducklings were supposed to be more resilient than chicks. Thanks!
