Duck on line

ducklings
5 day ducks

The first of the duck has arrived. We have just got 25 Peking ducks. These will be raised on pasture supplemented with GMO free feed. The birds are approximately 5 days old and all seem happy and rambunctious. They have become accustomed to being handled as they are lifted one by one into a new brooder with fresh bedding every 12 hours or so (because ducks love to scoop their water and spread throughout their brooder – they are very messy)

Feed

The amount of feed they get through is raising daily. They immediately took to the soy / GMO free crumbles. Perhaps next week they will get to try some insects.
