Kids are gone, one off to college, and the other an engineer. So, I've found some cool birds to raise for my wife and I. Two young Silver Duckwings, they were hatched at a friend of mines place early last spring. Currently they are in a 6x4x4 coup because that is easier for me to keep warm this winter. The sides are blanket insulated with some heat reflecting foil. I have two heat lamps. We watch them to keep them from getting too hot, or cold. So-far-so-good. I have a small barn on three acres so if I can keep critters away from them, I should be okay. My biggest threat is the neighbors dachshund.
