More newly hatched birds are lost in the first few days after arrival than during the actual shipping process. Proper care for those first 24 - 48 hours is critical to the health and future of your flock. We have created a helpful waterfowl care guide for raising baby ducklings and goslings that outlines some important steps in preparing your brooding area for your shipment of baby ducks or geese. Whether you are a seasoned veteran to raising waterfowl or this is your first time, please read through this duckling care guide carefully to be sure you are following all necessary guidelines in providing a safe and healthy environment for your birds.
