Today on The Duck Chronicles Episode Seven – Water from Heaven. We have another great day of gains on the weight.
From our 20 duck sample we have gone from 3.535 to 4.165 ounces for a per duck gain of .63 ounces. That is a 17.82% gain in 24 hours.
Additionally when we look at total gain across 50 ducklings in total these little girls have 7.36 pound total in 5 days. It is now getting to the point where you can feel the difference in muscle tone when you pick them up.
A few days ago they felt so delicate and you fears squishing them. They now feel like fuzz covered muscle!
A pattern also seems to be emerging as such, these numbers are rounded off.
- Day One Gain 29%
- Day Two Gain 17%
- Day Three Gain 30%
- Day Four Gain 18%
Additionally we discuss the water capacity of the short metal feeders. They hold just about a half a liter each. That is a bit over two cups and that is not filling them all the way to the top.
