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)
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.
