Chickens, geese or ducks?
Summer residents – people are fond of. Not only their beds and flower beds, they are also living creatures in their 6 acres contain, so that the eggs were fresh, and milk, and honey. And happy to share their experience with each other.
Growing broilers in the country
With the new summer season come new hope. How to make this productive year previous? If you decide to have a bird, I can say the following. Broilers require little space and backyard area. It is better if one or two sides made of mesh-netting – it will allow to enter the corral fresh air and sunlight. Better to take broilers in late May – early June. Bought a week or 10 days at home fed starter feed, and – to the country, the sun, fresh air. To purchase a feed mixture on the market specifically for this breed, feed 4-5 times a day. For 2 months the chicks give a good gain in weight.
Growing geese in the country
Geese take better in April, at the beginning. Keep them up to months of age at home, and only when the daily temperature is not lower than 18-20 degrees transported to the country. I do not have near the natural pond, meadows, so the pond built with his own hands (small), the water is changed every three days. Personally feed kids 4-5 times a day green mass (grass) and grain mixture. Weight gain is good, but at the expense of growth. A growing goslings should be at least 7-8 months, and it does not work full goose. Conclusion: holiday in terms of geese is better not to start.
Growing of ducks in the country
Ducks (any) grow during 2.5-3 months, but eating a lot. Take out is better for fattening at the end of May. A week at home to feed (all the ducks are very resilient) and transported to the country at a steady heat. body of water is not required up to a month, and later – a commitment, as ducklings love to swim. It’s nice to watch when ducks splashing in a clean pond. Feed should be of up to 5 times a day grated vegetables, herbs nettle, corn mixture. Well out of the river to bring a bucket of duckweed – ducks love it, it’s their species feed. My conclusion is: to take the spring no more than 10 pieces, but even that amount would require costly and time. Although ducks grow really, get a decent gain and quality of meat. What is interesting to observe the ducks! Very clever, careful, beautiful, clean bird. If you decide to start a duck, it is necessary to put more squash. Courgettes – the favorite food of ducks, but be sure to rub them on a grater.
