We now have six ducklings. It's warmer this year so they may be able to move outdoors sooner than last year. Plus, they are growing faster than our last year's batch. This morning, I noticed some of them "quack" now instead of the "peep" they make when young! Ducks are a real challenge to raise as they have to be kept out of the weather until they have their adult feathers. We designed a cage that is 4x4 sitting on an 8x4 platform. To clean the cage, we just move the cage from one side to the other. We line the bottom with cardboard and then newspaper and dry grass (if I have time to cut some). This eliminates the need for "duck wrangling" every time you clean the cage! Ducks are not really fond of being caught, though they do adapt over time.
little rain. The dust blows everywhere. The wind
has been fierce this winter, resulting in many days
looking like this.

to the ranch. Yak raising is probably well suited for Wyoming. The critters are adapted to high altitudes
