Hello! Tell me, please, why ducks are not displayed? Repeatedly. The duck sits for 30, 40, 50 days ... no ducks. I checked a few eggs, ducklings everywhere are dead. Just a nightmare of some kind ((((Valentine)

Valentine, hello. There may be several reasons. I will name them all, although in your version I tend most to overheat chicks.

The first is the staleness of the eggs. For incubation, it is suitable masonry, which is not more than 10 days. At the same time they can not be stored in the refrigerator or in a too cold room.

If you have checked the eggs during the incubation period and have already seen the chicks, then the first reason, as well as the fact that the incubation product was not fertilized, should not be considered. In this case, most likely, the blame for overheating chicks. Is there a bath for a duck bath and how often has she left the nest?

In nature, the duck regularly leaves the nest during a visit to the reservoir. Then, when the female sits back on the clutch, her wet feather creates the necessary moisture and conditions for successful incubation. It is therefore very important that at home also stood near the nest bath with water. During the walk, the duck should swim there periodically, ideally every day. A duck must walk for at least 30 minutes - up to an hour and a half.

And the last thing - do not put the same duck on the laying each time. Remember that breeding chicks is a huge stress for the bird.


Many sparrows constantly penetrate into the cage to the hens. Is it dangerous for chickens and how to deal with it? (Oleg)

Oleg, good afternoon. The danger of sparrows, like other wild birds, for chickens there is only one thing - the spread of infections and viruses, as well as external parasites. From this, of course, no one is immune, because the sparrows now and then visit the poultry houses, chicken feeders. Walking freely on the street, the hens are somehow in contact with the outside world. Therefore, you can protect yourself, for example, with the help of vaccination of poultry and careful hygiene of the premises and equipment.

If sparrows penetrate inside the cage, then it is necessary to somehow protect it. For example, you can fill the top of the protective layer of the grid or cover the cage with light tulle. Well, it is advisable not to leave the feeder with food in the public domain.


This year I bought chickens of the high-line breed, at the end of the summer I saw that the chickens were shedding, the egg-laying rate had dropped sharply. Appetite in chickens is good. I read that in the first year molting chickens do not happen. What it is? (Oleg)

Hello, Oleg. Let's say right away that for highly productive layers, which are representatives of high-line, this phenomenon happens often. Moreover, the better the molt passes, that is, the better the chicken looks at this time, the worse the hen is from it. It is during the molting period that you can safely discard the bird.

Of course, a normal molt should take place in October-November, but once again we repeat that for a highly productive bird it is not a bad thing. It is important to understand that their body spends on the production of eggs a lot of substances, therefore, the period of changing the pen proceeds in different ways. Perhaps your chickens do not have a completely balanced diet, so there was such a failure. And here, as for a molt in the first year, then just in spring the young layers must necessarily shed. Their appearance should be approximately as in the video.
