New Camera!? Awesome...it's very clear, what camera did you get? I just ordered one too...I can't wait for it to get here! :-) I wish I could give you ideas on why they are dying off....humm. I just don't have experience in this area but if you figure it out...please let us know! I'm going to be homesteading soon and I need all the info I can get! :-) God Bless, Wayne
If I were in your position, I would reach out to a local veterinarian and ask what some of the possible causes of death could be. Community is an excellent resource.
I have had ducks for 7 years, with the majority of them being muscovies and pekins. I have never lost a duck to the cold, they can handle it and they dont need heat. I have noticed that when I lose a duck they are usually in the age range of about 4 years. This goes for both sexes. I have lost more drakes than hens however. I let my ducks freerange and give them a barn with straw to go into at night if they so choose. I have had my ducks out roaming in the middle of a blizzard too, they amaze me. I do add a bit of corn to their diet in the colder months when it stays below freezing. I am sure that your problem is not because they are cold. Good luck!
I will have to see if I can find one here in England thanks for the info....
Sorry to hear of your livestock problems. Who makes your hat would love one just like it..
Frezzer! harvest and use as you need them.Duck! my fav meat...cost me $30 nz for a few breasts!
Nice new camera and it very good at catching detail. I would put a camera with your ducks.
New cam is great, you are lucky. I've been nagging the missus just to get one for ages. Have fun and I look forward to seeing some new videos.
Thanks for doing this video. I saw a mallard that apparently just fell out of the sky, and was lying dead in the road the other day. Maybe sometimes these birds hit a critical mass, and it's just too much for them.
Sorry to hear about your animals. I am sure that they will not go to waste, and you will figure it out soon enough. Love the new camera too. I am not sure what it is but it looks like the white balance was on auto cause it fades in and out at 1080p. Amazing how much more detail their is in your beard too. Impressive
We've had some problems on the homestead this week. Check out our latest update! (And my new camera!)Livestock Problems - Homestead Update
