I use chicken layer - and I add calcium.
Our Khaki Campbells enjoy the same scratch and lay pellets we buy for our chickens. The protein content is sufficient. We supplement their diets with oyster shell, garden and kitchen scraps, and boiled eggs smashed along with their shells. -DB
Have you tried shelf liner. It is grippy and porous and washable. There are lots of brands available this one just happens to be called DUCK Brand: http://www.amazon.com/Duck-1100731-...831570&sr=1-2&keywords=drawer+and+shelf+liner
I have a couple of small holes in my pools, I was going to put some gorilla glue or caulk on the outside to seal it. Would either of those be harmful to the ducks? I thought it would be ok since it will be outside the pool where the duck really wouldn't have much contact with it.
We mend cracks in our pools with Shoe Goo. It is thick and slightly pliable when "dry." It works very well if applied when the surface is dry and left to cure for 12 hours. -DB
Hey Darnbunnies! Thanks for the great idea about thr shoe goo, I'll keep that in mind. Love BYC, Tons of great ideas!
Interesting, I had never thought to use that. How long will it last? Do you have to replace it very often? Thanks for the help!
Thanks , I will probably give them oyster shell along with grit at mealtimes.
Ok seriously ducklings, how long does it take to hatch?? Its been over 24 hours sense first pip and not one has totally unzipped... I'm starting to understand why there seem to be so many assisted duck hatches.... They sure take their time...
This is normal right?
Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks says they "require 24 to 48 hours to completely rim the shell and exit".
