  Caring for Ducks
Worming your ducks twice a year is a good idea, however I do know plenty of people that worm once a year, and more if needed. As for heat that is another topic that seems to be up for debate for many. Here where we are we don't see much extreme cold weather. However that doesn't mean we didn't have to deal with a frozen pond, and even a duck rescue this past winter. Many people say that with proper housing during winter additional heat is not required.However I know some that have used it in there duck houses, but they also use heat in there chicken coops as well.Here in Alabama good insulated housing does the job just fine with out additional heat. So I would have to say what ever work for you,it may not be the answer you were looking for,but I think that with time and experience you will be able to tell what you think is best. It's like raising children, you take what advice you are given and the knowledge you have and make the best of it. I hope that helps.

Pekins are not a bad dual purpose duck, but most are raise more for meat. Our females lay 100+ each season, and like chickens lay best during spring,summer. Our girls lay 1 every day to everyother day.There are better breeds for egg laying purposes. Runners are great if you are looking for lots of yummy eggs. As for taste duck eggs are very rich and are wonderful for baking. Everyone is suprised when the ask for my sercret for a great pound cake and I tell them duck eggs. Ducks are great pets we really love ours, and we will be adding more this spring. Most people are hooked on them once they try them. I always have some on lined up to buy or trade for my extra eggs. If you want a super fun pet get ducks, they do best in pairs or trios at least though, or the more the merrier.

Thanks for commenting on our page. Right now we raise Pekins but we will be adding several new breeds this spring as well as geese. We raise ours for eggs and breeding, but Pekins make great meat ducks but I can't bring myself to do the deed.I love my ducks they are really allot of fun. I love to just sit on my porch and watch my chickens and ducks, it never fails to put a smile on my face.

  We have a bunch of forested land with an old maple farm. No start up money and no tractor so I am not sure what to do with all of this land. It would be nice to bring in some extra money. Anybody have any suggestions?

hi there and thanks for visiting my page. i have rhode island reds and delawares, easter egger and plymouth barred rock. after they work out their pecking order, there's not much aggression with my gals and the rooster. but, sometimes working that pecking order out is ugly! if one of your chickens gets some blood and the others don't leave it alone, put vicks vapor rub on it - the other chickens will NOT want to mess with it and it'll be able to heal.
