So a guy shows up randomly at our front door and asks if he can release his ducks on our lake. He got them for his little girl for Easter and now they getting big and it's too much for him. Well, I wasn't really planning to do the "duckling" stage, but I knew these ducklings couldn't be more than 2 weeks old and would NEVER survive on their own on our lake, soooooooooooo I got ducklings!! Meet Tweety and Taz. I have NO IDEA what I'm doing!! I've read enough on here to know to get them off the the medicated chicken starter he had them on. They had been eating it for at least two weeks. Do y'all think they will be okay now that I'm getting off it?? Also, I've read that between 6-8 weeks old they will have all their feathers and can be allowed to free range on the lake. Thoughts? Right now they are in a very large dog crate, which I know isn't going to hold them for long. I just couldn't let him just release them any old where because I know they likely wouldn't make it! All suggestions and tips are appreciated. Oh...........and any idea on breed? I'm thinking they are likely Pekin. He bought them at the local Tractor Supply Company.
