How To Care For Chicks And Ducks

 

These are the things you will need to care for chicks and Ducks,

 

  • A warm enclosed spot where predators are not able to get in. ( A large tote will work depending on how many chicks or ducks you have)
  • A water dish shallow enough that if a chick falls in it will not drown. ( ducks may want to play in the water)
  • A feed dish ( A shallow clay dish will work)
  • Chick Feed
  • Hay or wood chips
  • A heat lamp
  • A fan

Step by step instructions on setting up the tote,

  1. Put a layer of hay (or wood chips) on the bottom of the tote about 2” inches thick.
  2. fill water dish and set at one end of the tote.
  3. fill feed dish and set at the other end of the tote.
  4. set up a fan or heat lamp depending on the time of year and where the tote is. ( Tote needs to be warm but not to hot )
