Well, the ducklings have been with us just over a week, and if their past week of growth is any indication, we may have received emus instead of ducks.
Our brooder will busting at the seams by the weekend, and we read that the ducks will need to be in it for about 2 months. Looks like I will be at Lowes this Saturday rethinking how best to raise 13 ducks on my dining room table until the weather warms.
So let me close this post with the best piece of advice I can currently give to anyone getting ducklings for the first tim: ducklings are cute little fluff balls for about 2 seconds and will be as big as a grey parrot in about a week. You have been warned.
