Caring For Ducks -
Duck Care Tips For a Healthy Flock
If you want to have an unusual pet, you can get a
duck. Okay, so it is not that unusual. Nevertheless, there are not many people
who keep ducks as pets. Anyway, if you want to have a harmonious relationship
with your new pet, you must learn how to start caring for ducks. Eventually, you
might decide to keep more ducks and start a business.
When caring for ducks, it is important that you let them live in their natural
habitat. However, if you do not have a pond, you can always create an artificial
one. A child's swimming pool will be good enough. This will provide a swimming
and cooling area for the duck. You can also set the duck free in your backyard,
provided that you keep dogs and bigger animals from entering the premises. You
have to make sure that its environment is comfortable and free from predators.
Then, you must also make sure that the duck is not left outside during extreme
weather conditions. Caring for ducks include providing a duck house. You can
place the duck in a brooding area where the temperature is adjusted to its
comfort level. Nonetheless, you must make sure that you have already prepared
for situations like this. Make sure that you have already found a good brooding
area for your duck before you acquire it.
Well, the brooding areas of people caring for ducks are usually situated in
garage corners or small buildings. However, if you only have one duck, a
cardboard box will do. Just make sure that it is enclosed, so the duck will be
protected from rodents, cats, coyotes, and other animals. Its flooring must also
be covered with hay, straw, or other absorbent materials. If the brooding area
of the duck is made from wood and it does not have any floor cover, the shavings
might cause health problems if the duck tries to eat them. In addition, you must
always keep the brooding area dry and clean. Always discard moldy beddings. You
must also keep the brooding well-ventilated and draft-free. You can use a lamp
that has an infrared bulb as a heat source.
Furthermore, you have to
feed your duck well. Give him proper food and plenty of
water. If you take care of your duck properly, both of you will be happy.
