    Would you guys mind directing me to a thread about hatching ducks? Something that might say "oh here's some recommended feeding for the parents before you start collecting... do you feed your baby this... don't this" or just give me some quick basic tips.
    I'm just starting to collect eggs.... And if there is a recommended feeding ( for the parents) to increase my hatch rate I'll stop collecting and rearrange my plans...

    This site doesn't say anything about changing feed but has information if you plan on hatching using an incubator..

    Lucky when I went out to cows two days ago it was -25!!!! Without wind chill. Had to carry water to everyone because auto water froze. They thawed around 8 o clock though.
