Into Healthy Adult Ducks - All You Need to Know
Raising baby ducks will give you plenty of
benefits. For instance, you can have sources of meat and eggs. You can also sell
eggs, ducklings, fully grown ducks, or duck meat for profit. You will not need
to spend much time and money for them either. In addition, they can make your
yard better. They will eat dandelions, bugs, garden snails, and their poop will

Raising baby ducks is also better than raising chicks for a variety of reasons.
Ducks have stronger resistance against common avian diseases. Hence, they live
much longer. They also do not require elaborate housing, and they can get
through any kind of environment. They need shorter brooding periods and less
rearing places. They grow very fast, as well. Moreover, they are not picky when
it comes to food. They can eat almost anything, from plants to small amphibians.
They can also eat bread, crackers, and store-bought feeds. You will even be able
to reduce feed costs because ducks have the natural propensity to eat algae,
fungi, aquatic weeds, insects, maggots, and legumes.
Anyway, when raising baby ducks, you must always remember the basics. For
instance, you have to brood the baby ducks until they are one month old. You
must keep the brooding spot dry with the use of beddings made up of hay. You
must replace wed beddings immediately; and you must never use dusty or moldy
beddings. The brooding area's temperature must also be kept warm but not hot.
Also, you must not
feed the ducklings with whole grains such as corn or rice.
You must not give them dry bread and bird seed either.
The baby ducks will not be able to digest these foods; although you can give
them some moistened pieces of bread, as well as worms, vegetables, and fruits.
Raising baby ducks also entail breeding. The ratio of female ducks to male ducks
is 5:1. So, for every five female ducks, there should be one male duck. The male
ducks must also be one month older or of the same age as the females.
