In The Ducks Chronicles Episode Ten – Out to the Big Play Pen, it is time to go outside for the first time. They won’t be spending the night outside just yet but they will start spending all day light hours outside unless we get really bad weather.
The weight gain today was very modest they went from 5.33 to 5.57 ounces based on a 20 duck sample but this morning they were weighed for the first time before being fed so that made the number low compared to the previous day.
So far today all has been well except for being scared by the geese who were being pretty obnoxious until Charlie put them in their place.
I also show how the drain system comes apart for cleaning.
The panels that make up the pen are 8 footers you can get at Tractor Supply. http://bit.ly/1vsL0xH
The green plastic fencing came from Premier One Fencing; you can find it here http://bit.ly/16zAtFX
The reusable zip ties are a great tool for many things. These are the ones we use, http://amzn.to/1zAL114 these are six inches, you can get longer ones but make sure to get the ones that say Monoprice and that are rated to 50 lbs. The other ones on Amazon we have found were pretty crappy comparatively. They break faster and simply don’t work as well.
