my Abacot Ranger ducklings are a week old now, and are getting BIG!!!!! They are making a lot of mess with water, food and poop, which i'm sure is totally normal.. now, my concern is that they are sleeping in some odd places.. i went to check on them tonight, and they are both sleeping on wet patches! their tummys are wet from sitting on the wet area! ive also noticed in the last 2 days or so, that they are "sneezing" or what i would assume to be sneezing.. is there something wrong with them?
thanks, Danni x
What type of feed are you using? The crumbles are better and not mash. Make sure their drinking water is deep enough to cover their nostrils and that will help with any sneezing, it could be they are eating a lot and maybe not drinking enough, or their drinker is a bit too shallow. They grow out of things soooo quickly don't they?
We are using crumb food, I posted a pic in my first thread.. And it probably is that their drinker is a bit shallow.. I'll sort of out when I get home! Thanks
I think we are due some more photos soon?
Are they are risk of drowning from this being only just over a week old? And should I maybe take the lid off and let them have a paddle unsupervised, as and when they want?
