In The Duck Chronicles Episode Thirty Seven – The Beginning of a New Lesson we have what might look like a rewind, baby ducks. Not from our broody girls though just yet. We have adopted what looks like a young Pekin duck from a family that found her in their back yard. But we have no other babies and a duck alone is a duck in stress, so Dorothy went down to the feed store and got 5 other babies so now we are brooding a small group of 6.
We figured while we are at it we might as well brood some turkey polts this year so we got three of them as well. Believe it or not the tiny ducklings are slightly bullying the much larger baby turkeys.
I also show you all the irrigation we put in for the cider orchard, the broody girls are still sitting on their eggs and I have planted a large number of Nanking Bush Cherry and planned the installation of 300 plus fence feet of muscadine grapes.
I also show you the new poop free duck waterer made from 6 inch pvc and a simple hole saw.
