We happened to spot some day old chicks and ducklings at our local feedstore the other day. We'd been talking about getting ducks for awhile now, so figured we'd better get some while they're selling.
While they started out being super cute and tiny, they are fast growers and oh, so nasty! They already poop as much as our adult chickens do, and its impossible to keep their area clean and DRY.
I will be moving them outside just as soon as the weather allows it. We got nine altogether, three each of the following breeds: white pekin, Rouen, and Indian Runners. Assorted genders.
