Ducks - What You Need to Know If You Want Your Ducklings to Stay
Alive and Healthy
Ducks are becoming more and more popular as
choices for pets these days. There are many reasons for this. For one, it
doesn't take a lot of money to keep ducks. They are considerably cheaper than
cats and dogs. Ducks are also harmless compared to their venomous counterparts,
like certain reptiles and vermin. And of course, who can deny the fact that
ducks are simply adorable? Their furriness and small size are enough to make
anyone want to cuddle and play with them.
But it still takes work to keep ducks. What to
feed baby ducks is one of the
most important issues that you need to address if you want your ducklings to
stay alive and healthy. But before you find out what to feed baby ducks, first
know how to store your ducklings in a properly heated space. Your ducklings
won't have any chance at all of surviving if they are not secured in a warm,
brooding area. A cardboard box will do, but make sure that it has its own
heating source, such as a light bulb, and that it can't be reached by
potentially harmful animals, such as other pets you have or pests around the
house. You can place an absorbent bedding to keep them comfortable, but don't
use straw or hay because they pose real danger when your ducklings mistake them
for food and try to chew them off.
Now that they're settled in their own brooding space, you can concentrate on
what to feed baby ducks. The proper feed is essential to raise healthy, active
ducklings. For the first weeks, go for unmedicated duck starter, which you can
easily purchase from your local pet store or online. Slowly, introduce finely
chopped fruits and vegetables (to accommodate their lack of teeth) into their
diet. Ducks like green plants, from fresh weeds to pre-packed dried leaves.
Ducks are also known to enjoy worms and small insects.
Now that you know what to feed baby ducks, the process won't be complete without
water. Ducks are water creature, but baby ducks are at risk of drowning. Refrain
from using deep water containers, as your ducks may fall into the water and
catch a cold or drown. A good water container is one that has a jar that
dispenses water into the round moat surrounding it.
