Today on The Duck Chronicles Episode Twenty – Growth Aplenty  we have our first weight report in 7 days.  The average weight on February 7th was 8.97 ounces they are now as of 2-14, 18.25 oz or 1.14 pound.

Our adult flock lay count is up from 11-12 to 18 today likely due to getting a better browse input due to our paddocking of them and making them work certain areas a bit harder.

Today we also discuss more on timing the moves from paddock to paddock, a bit more on working with dogs and let you know that you an order the zip ties we recommend directly from Monoprice.com

I also show you how we use a simple siphon to empty the larger kiddy pools and put the fertile water exactly where we want it.  And we have released Adjunct 4 on working with dogs.

  1. Jack, what are those grey plastic bases around the small trees ?

  2. Can you feed kitchen scraps to ducks like you can with chickens?

  3. Feed the hose into the water, put you thumb over the end, pull the hose out and it will siphon on its own.

      Yea, um, no it won’t. Not in less you want to stick your hands into that pool of poop water to be sure you get enough water into the hose to start the siphon.

  4. Psychrometric chart describes the physics of air. You can get frost at 45 if you have no humidity and a breeze for evaporative cooling. A clear sky helps as well. Its pretty cool… thanks for the videos.

      Frost is one thing, FROZEN water in tanks is another. Like an inch of ice on top of a tank of water.

  5. which electronic collar do you use?

    Have you looked into DuckPonics at all? I just started researching and was wondering if anyone has done any work with a cyclonic solids separator and then pumping remainder through grow beds. Do you think the “solids” would respond well to easy separation? I assumed they would if they seal ponds well.
