Ducks & Water


Ducks are waterfowl and it is important for them to have access to water so that they can swim in the water as well as dabble in it, submerge their head in it to keep their eyes clean and healthy and to bathe in it so that they can keep themselves free from mites and lice.

Some duck breeds need a larger pond than others.

I have khaki campbell ducks and they are happy to dabble and bathe in containers of water.

If you don’t have a pond then you can provide your ducks with large containers so that they can still dabble, bathe and swim if the container is large enough.

If you keep ducks or are interested in keeping ducks then visit the farmingfriends duck forum for the latest chat about ducks and then check out the khaki campbell duck eggs for hatching sales page.
