Ducks, Ducks and More Ducks

Well, we are the proud new owners of 6 Indian Runner ducklings. They are inside one of our outbuildings. They are in one of our stock tanks with pine shavings and a heat lamp. They will remain here for the next 4 to 5 weeks, until they get their feathers in. By then Murray should have the duck coop built. :-)
I have read that you should wait until the ducks are about 4 or 5 months of age before you work dogs on them.
It will be a fun project. They are layers and will lay around 300 eggs per year per duck.
