Duck Farming -
Starting Out On Your Experience
farming can be a rewarding experience for you. For some, it has even
become more than just a means of livelihood. It has also become an
enjoyable activity for many. Of course, you will need to know how to
properly raise your ducks so that you will be able to get the most
out of it.
First thing you need to do is to get yourself the proper equipment.
The basic equipment will be those that you need for watering and
feeding your ducks. Chicken feeders will do just fine. A specialty
water stand is recommended so that water can drip down without
getting the coop wet. This is especially important if you have
ducklings since they tend to splash around a lot.
Speaking of coops, it is important that you provide proper litter.
Duck farming requires that you provide a place for your ducks where
they can be sheltered from the elements and where you can give them
adequate heating. Litters, which would be composed of wood shavings
or straw, need to be replaced at least daily so that cleanliness is
maintained and the spread of poultry disease avoided.
Speaking of diseases, those who go into duck farming need not worry
that much since ducks are known to be hardy birds. They do not get
affected too easily by bird diseases unlike turkeys and chickens,
for instance. Proper care, however, is still a must.
In line with this, duck farming will also require that you know how
to properly feed your ducks. Since duck farming has already
attracted a lot of people, it shouldn't be that hard to find the
appropriate food for your ducks. Standard chicken feed is actually
acceptable. You can also lead them out to pasture. For those who
will be using feed, a hanging tube feeder can help minimize food
Of course, the most crucial part of duck farming is choosing what
breed you will keep. For this, you will need to be clear as to why
you are raising ducks. Certain ducks are more suited for particular
purposes such as providing meat or giving eggs. Others are more
ornamental in nature while there are self-sufficient breeds that can
help free-range your breeding. Doing a little research will help
familiarize you with the different breeds that you may want to
consider for yourself.
