Today on The Duck Chronicles – Episode Four – Baby Ducks Out the Door we spend some times with the new babies. They have now been outside for 3 nights and everyone is doing just awesome.
They are eating about 50% LESS feed then they did last winter in the brooder. Today I also discuss more about SDB (short duration brooding) and why it works but why it isn’t for everyone or for every season.
I let you guys know the 5 breeds in this batch.
40 – Golden Layers
5 – Chocolate Runners
5 – Rouens
5 – Welsh Harlequins
5 – Buffs
I finish up discussing our plans for a large quail aviary made with cattle panels and how it will let us basically produce pastured quail and quail eggs and leak bit more about the quail product I am working on for suburban environments.
I kind of wish you were weighing a few of these like you did with the first group. I would like to see the comparison between the 2 groups with the second foraging for much more of their food
Just can’t find the time to do that. In the end all that really matters is do they grow and thrive.
