I was wondering if my mallard ducks will continue to lay eggs year round.
Ducks need a minimum of 14 hours of light to remain in egg production. You will need to supplement with a light in the coop for the hens to lay during the winter.
i have a three acre yard. when my flying
mallards are old enough to go outside in my pond will they try and fly away or do i need to clip there wings
They are a wild bird, so if you want them to stay on your property, you would need to clip their wings. It should be done every 3 months or so as the feathers will grow back.
Do I need a permit to raise the in Maine?
Not that we are aware of. But I would suggest contacting your local DNR to find out for sure.
I have some young flying mallards that I just got a few days ago. When are they going to be able to be let outside to live/fly/swim? I have two ponds to put them on when they are ready, i just don't know when they'll be ready.
You want them to be mostly feathered before releasing them onto a pond. It may take 6-8 weeks.
What do I need to do for the ducklings right after they hatch? I forgot to order your hatch book and now they are hatching. HELP
Scroll down to the duck and geese care. https://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/chickcare.html
Do I have to buy them as ducklings or can I get them bigger?
They are only available as newly hatched ducklings.
Do the flying mallards lay eggs
Yes, the females will lay eggs.
What does straight run mean?
The st run birds are not sexed, so shipped as hatched. We can not guarantee how many males or females you will receive.
Beyond pleased!I was very skeptical from ordering online and having my mallard ducklings shipped across the country to me but I was blown away when I picked them up. I got my ducklings in about a day after they had shipped and when I picked them up from the post office I could hear them chirping in the back room. They were so lively and healthy when I got them home. I have had them for 3 days now and they are doing great! Would recommend this company and definitely will be placing all future orders from them.
