Day-Old Ducklings

One of the most critical periods in the life of ducklings is their first few weeks in life. So, ensure you have the ducklings house (equipped with brooder) ready as you make your order. Baby ducks need proper heat, food, water, and bedding; our offered ducklings are reputable for their proven survivability and disease resistance.

Advantages of Duck Farming

Ever wondered why you need to keep ducks on your farm? Here are perfect answers for you:

  • Ducks lay more eggs per bird per year than chicken.
  • The size of the duck egg is larger than the hen egg by about 15 to 20 g.
  • Ducks require lesser attention and thrive well in scavenging conditions. With very little time and work, you can raise a small flock of ducks.
  • From a commercial point of view, ducks have a longer profitable life.
  • Ducks do not require any elaborate houses like chicken.
  • They are quite hardy, more easily brooded, and more resistant to common avian diseases.
  • Ducks lay 95 – 98% of their eggs in the morning before 9.00 AM thus saving a lot of time and labor.
  • Ducks are suitable for integrated farming systems such as duck-cum-fish farming. In duck-cum-fish farming, the droppings of ducks serve as feed for the fishes and no other feed or manuring of the pond is necessary for fishes (200-300 ducks per hectare of the waste area). Under integrated duck farming with rice cultivation, the ducks perform four essential functions viz., intertillage as they search for food, their bills loosen up the soil around the rice plants (weeding), insect control, and manuring.
  • Ducks are good exterminators of potato beetles, grasshoppers, snails, and slugs. In areas plagued liver flukes, ducks can help correct the problem (2 to 6 ducks per 0.405 hectares of land). Ducks can be used to free the bodies of water from mosquito pupae and larvae (6 to 10 ducks per 0.405 hectares of water surface).

Feeding Ducklings

  • Ducklings can be fed regular chick feed. Be sure the feeds are unmedicated because ducklings eat more than chicks and there is a risk they could over-medicate themselves.
  • Ducklings have higher niacin requirements than chicks. So, add a sprinkle of brewer’s yeast on top of their feed to assist in building strong bones.
  • Raw oats can also be slowly added to their feed for added protein and nutrients until a 25% oats/75% feed ratio is achieved.
  • Grit in the form of commercial chick grit or coarse dirt must also be provided to help the ducklings digest their food.
  • Because of the high tendency of baby ducks to make a mess with excess feed, it is always best to give them only the portion they can finish.
  • Leaving only water with ducklings is fine, leaving feed without water is not. Any time they have access to feed they must have water nearby or they can choke.


One week-old duckling will drink about half a gallon of water a week. By the time they are seven weeks old, ducklings drink half a gallon of water daily, so be sure their water is always filled.

How to handle your ducks

  • The legs or wings of a duck can easily be hurt or even broken. So, never grab a duck by the legs or the wings.
  • To catch a duck, grasp it firmly but gently at the base of the neck.
  • You can also catch a duck by holding its wings against its sides with one hand on each side of its body and a thumb over each wing.
  • After you have caught a duck, slide one hand under its body and hold its legs firmly. Then you can rest the body of the duck on the lower part of your arm and carry it easily.
  • If you have to move a duck from place to place, you can carry it in a box or a crate with a cover. First, tie the legs of the duck together. Then put it gently inside and put on the cover to keep the duck from getting out.

Raising Baby Ducks

  • Start your ducklings off in a safe and warm environment: a duck brooder! For the best environment use a heat lamp with between a 40 and 100 watts light bulb. You can adjust the bulb wattage according to the way the ducklings react. If the baby ducks are huddling under the heat lamp, you probably should raise the wattage on the bulb. If the baby ducks are scattered and seem to be panting, you should lower the wattage. Be sure that they can get away from the heat source if they get too warm.
  • Make sure the brooder is predator-resistant. Remember, until ducklings are bigger and can fly away from them, rats, cats, and mongoose will always try to oppress your baby ducks.
  • When raising baby ducks, make sure you provide the ducklings with fresh, clean drinking water. You can use a shallow dish that you have added some clean pebbles to. The pebbles will prevent the ducklings from submerging their head and drowning. They need to submerge their head to clear their sinuses but any deeper than the nostrils can drown them.
  • Ducklings can die if they are without water for even short periods.
  • Feeders and drinkers must be constructed and maintained so ducks have easy access to them at all times. They must be kept clean and free from litter/manure.
  • Moldy feeds must not be fed. Stale or contaminated feed must not be allowed to accumulate and must be replaced immediately with fresh feed.
  • For each duckling up to 3 weeks of age, provide 1.5 cm of drinking space and 4 cm of feeding space.
