    I am thinking about it. I just have never had baby ducks. I know nothing about them either. Please give me all the information I need!!

    Read the stickies at the top of the forum and then narrow down any further questions you have. ;)

    Hmmmm, a technical wrinkle. Anyone know how to navigate to stickies using the mobile app?

    luluann, here's what I did on mobile. At the bottom of the page on the mobile device there are two buttons. One is Mobile and the other is Desktop. I tapped on the Desktop button and got the desktop version on the phone (very tiny print!!!) I scrolled to the top of the page and just under the blue "Start a New Thread" button is "Sticky" Threads for the "Duck Forum" and under that is the link into the stickies.

    I didn't really find what I needed so here's my questions
    1. Do they need water to play in?
    2. If they do can I take them out during the day to play in the water?
    3. Can you give them chick starter?
    4. Can they get Patsy butt?
    I'm sure ill have more but that all for now.

    1. Ducklings shouldn't be allowed to get and stay wet as they can chill and die. Adults, theoretically no, but they will appreciate it alot. They do need to bathe but a kiddie pool or a container large enough for them to get into can suffice.
    2. Yes
    3. Yes
    4. No, not like chicks. For ducklings you need to worry about overly wet conditions, making sure they have appropriate access to water and are eating.
