00:09
welcome back it’s been a while since
00:12
I’ve seen you guys last Ajax has
00:14
actually grown massively how big years
00:18
now
00:18
Hey yes it’s also everyone yeah okay
00:22
well he’s going really big the purpose
00:25
of today’s video is definitely about how
00:28
to care for your duck so the reason I’m
00:30
making this video is because I’ve had a
00:31
ton of comments on my other video
00:34
walking my duck on a lead of people just
00:37
asking me how do you keep your dark what
00:40
do you feed them
00:41
where did you get the harness from so
00:44
today’s videos just to clear all that up
00:46
give people a bit of advice as to how
00:49
they can look after their duck friend or
00:52
friends and yes and I’ve got some cool
00:55
stories for you guys so definitely I’ve
00:57
got a cool story about somebody that
01:00
bought a duckling because of me through
01:02
YouTube and they sent me a message about
01:04
the dark and I’ll tell explain to you
01:07
what happens hello hi icky inquire
01:11
welcome welcome to the best yard hey
01:15
guys hey guys oh there you go
01:21
that’s um that’s how they mate you
01:25
actually would bite the back of her neck
01:27
and mount her funny has that down and do
01:33
a deed so their cage if they’re angry
01:36
hey hey don’t attack me he gets a bit
01:39
territorial that’s enough so male ducks
01:43
can definitely get territorial
01:44
especially trying to boss me right now
01:49
hey mister this isn’t good
01:53
this is him trying to be dominant
01:55
they’re biting your feet don’t let them
01:57
do it just grab them tell them no
01:59
sometimes if you pin them down on the
02:01
ground gently I’ll show you come out so
02:04
if you just pin them down like this and
02:06
hold them there for a little while
02:09
they’re actually going to learn that
02:12
you’re the boss so it’s all about
02:14
dominancy with God with male ducks
02:17
especially kaya wherever she is going
02:20
female ducks are much much more soft and
02:23
flaccid but let’s guy who are definitely
02:26
shows a bit of aggression so you ready
02:29
to stop biting in the sky and you’ll
02:33
probably come back and try bite me again
02:34
but it’s because I’m trying to take his
02:37
eggs I can’t so as you can see more
02:41
light right here oh so their cage is
02:44
definitely in need of a clean so we’re
02:46
going to go through that today together
02:48
and some reason they always leave the
02:50
egg by the door for me neither
02:53
so one fresh duck egg for me thank you
02:57
so much all right he’s gone side okay so
03:01
because a key mates require if I lift
03:05
this egg in a warm environment it would
03:08
hatch into a duck point so because I
03:12
don’t want any more ducklings right now
03:14
as soon as they hatch an egg the first
03:17
thing in the morning I remove it from
03:19
their cage I give it a little wash here
03:23
obviously under the tap clean up all the
03:26
dirt okay and now we come over here to
03:30
the fridge and as you can see there we
03:35
go oh I got some more veggies veggies
03:37
there for agent so as you can see I’ve
03:40
got lots of duck eggs clay actually
03:43
produces an egg a day then much bigger
03:46
than chicken eggs as you can see so duck
03:49
eggs taste exactly like chicken eggs
03:51
just the yellow is a little bit thicker
03:54
that’s the only difference that they
03:56
taste exactly the same I personally
03:59
think duck eggs
04:00
tastes like ten times
04:01
better than chicken eggs so if you can
04:02
get duck eggs they’re amazing for baking
04:04
you’re amazing with your bacon and eggs
04:06
so give it a go
04:08
all right I’m just here with a key
04:10
that’s over boy a key when you sell it’s
04:13
up there Ron man from the wall
04:15
all right so today we’re going to
04:17
explain to you guys exactly how to look
04:19
after ducks and look after a duck or
04:22
ducks just show you how to give them the
04:25
best living environment and safest
04:27
living environment okay that’s the most
04:29
important thing a doctor needs to be
04:31
happy and the documents to be safe
04:32
otherwise and look after themselves
04:34
pretty rough Ricky
04:37
that was a yes come on
04:40
oh hey baby try oh it’s you doing a
04:45
little cool life of a doubt all right
04:50
this is a Jackson’s house but he usually
04:52
sleeps and bothers me the pulse of the
04:55
ducks and this is their house okay so
05:00
it’s definitely nice and spacious I put
05:02
the blue cover on top just to give them
05:06
a bit of shade from the Sun also
05:08
nighttime the wind can push through
05:10
there so it’s just a bit of shelter from
05:12
your standing wind so it’s a nice big
05:15
enclosure
05:16
all right you see these bits of wood
05:18
that I have going around the cage here
05:22
okay so you get a lot of predators like
05:24
foxes and stuff like that that can
05:26
actually dig they will dig and burrow
05:29
underneath the cage and catch your ducks
05:31
eat their eggs kill the Ducks so I put
05:35
the sport here just to act as a flange
05:37
okay now this is going to make it harder
05:40
for animals big just because they have a
05:42
bit more distance now honestly if I can
05:45
give you guys some advice I would
05:47
recommend getting a fall like a four by
05:50
two like so a piece of wood that’s
05:52
actually a bit bigger like a plank that
05:54
goes all the way across and have some
05:56
big nails going through the plank so you
05:58
can push that plank into the ground that
06:01
way if the whole planks going across and
06:03
it has nails going into the ground
06:05
all you have to do is stand on the whole
06:06
stand on there and it will stop
06:10
predators so if you don’t have a flange
06:13
around your cage
06:15
then your difficult Ducks are definitely
06:17
at risk of digging predators so please
06:19
remember that that’s one of the biggest
06:21
bits of advice that I can give to you
06:23
guys okay okay so these are two things
06:25
that you’re going to need this here’s
06:27
duck next I buy it from the local
06:29
produce store text looks like sunflower
06:31
seeds it’s got corn it’s got like all
06:34
these other grains and seeds and as you
06:36
can see okay so that’s a must you just
06:39
give back to your ducks as a base with
06:42
some fruit and vegies it depends on the
06:45
duck they’re not all going to like fruit
06:47
and veggies I’m lucky enough if you just
06:50
keep everything he loves peens green
06:52
beans loves letters they love kale so
06:56
like I said just give them a mix of the
06:58
the grains the duck mix which isn’t very
07:00
expensive a bag like that cost me $20
07:03
and it lasts me three weeks okay so not
07:06
too expensive at all it could even last
07:08
longer
07:09
I have birds that come in the cage there
07:11
every day and they still deceive so I’m
07:14
pretty much wasting all my seed from
07:15
other birds as well but this is a must –
07:18
you need some hay when I move their cage
07:21
it’s going to be sitting on fresh grass
07:24
but if I put hay in there as well that’s
07:26
just going to absorb their poo a little
07:29
bit better and so I won’t have to move
07:31
it every day I can move probably every
07:33
three days and also if I have the hay in
07:36
there it’s like a nice bed for them to
07:38
sleep on at night okay so that’s
07:40
important guys you need seeds and grains
07:43
and hay all right so let’s bring the
07:46
Ducks up to say a little hello so how I
07:48
Drive
07:51
a little duckies guys so Kai is the
07:55
white one and Ickes the brown one here
07:58
they go
07:59
alright so back to cleaning their cage
08:02
sorry guys
08:03
Ajax is nowhere to be cleaned right now
08:10
showing on a fire so I’ve just gone from
08:31
there to here the reason we move the
08:34
cage over three days is because they poo
08:36
everywhere and it’s not very nice to
08:39
live in your own poop I say as you can
08:41
see here I’ve chosen a really flat area
08:43
there is a little bit of a gap there but
08:46
that’s why we use the wood on the
08:48
outside so it can fill that gap okay
08:49
right the first of all with your ducks
08:51
you need to think about water okay
08:54
they’re going to go through one of these
08:56
every day even though they have a big
08:58
pool of water over there they’re still
09:00
going to smash one of these out so let’s
09:03
go fill this up with some fresh water
09:05
remember most important thing your dark
09:08
has to be supplied with as much water as
09:10
they want can never run out always has
09:12
to have what okay
09:14
they are waterfowl so it’s important to
09:17
worry about this
09:19
[Music]
09:29
come on grout Keio come on come forth
09:34
longer honk aah ha
09:36
aqui you ruined it she was going to come
09:39
play with us as you can see kya class
09:43
well now this stuff here this is called
09:47
shell grip ok shell grit is basically
09:50
ground up shells now kya my female duck
09:54
will eat these ground-up shells for
09:57
added calcium because when you’re
09:59
pumping out an egg shell every day it
10:02
actually uses up a lot of her calcium so
10:05
she needs extra calcium and that’s shell
10:07
grit if I put this in her cage she knows
10:10
to eat it funnily enough I don’t know
10:13
how but if he doesn’t eat it much
10:15
because he doesn’t need up a client
10:16
needs it she actually eats it
10:18
so let’s give them some
10:22
[Music]
10:28
all right there we go so there’s all the
10:32
shell grip so that ground up shells so
10:40
then my female duck can get added
10:42
calcium for her egg grains okay that’s
10:45
the reason now this is the feeder you
10:47
step two of them but the other one broke
10:49
I just filled this up with these every
10:51
day
10:51
and give it a twist and all the food
10:53
come out and that’s how your ducks eat
10:56
so let’s fast open mr. scopetta seeds
10:59
guys just a quick tip when you’re
11:01
storing this in your shared outside make
11:03
sure you keep it in a plastic container
11:05
I actually have field mice that come
11:08
from outside and they try to steal the
11:10
seeds I try to chew through the plastic
11:12
container so make sure you keep this in
11:14
a safe spot okay so we’ve got our water
11:18
we’ve got our there you just turn it
11:24
policy so we’ve got our water we’ve got
11:27
our seeds and we’ve got our shell grip
11:30
okay and of course a our bits of wood a
11:35
bricks to hold down the blue sunshade
11:38
and that’s a winning okay so let’s start
11:41
with these right here there’s a gap so
11:44
what I’m going to need to do I’m going
11:46
to need to push push this piece of wood
11:49
so that’s fully covering that gap okay
11:52
now the next piece they’re just wedge it
11:56
in nice and close and like I said
11:58
because I have the blue sunshade I use a
12:02
brick there just to hold it down okay
12:05
so I’m going to repeat this process
12:07
right around hey Jax hey buddy you’re
12:11
keeping yourself busy huh okay there we
12:15
go so again good amount of gap
12:18
underneath so if I didn’t have these my
12:23
ducks would be at a very big risk
12:26
so just Lam mad I’m done hold on I’m
12:33
going a terrible job guys coming out for
12:36
sick make sure I keep my Doc’s safe
12:40
okay so I’ve wedged that under there
12:43
really really good like I said that’s
12:46
just going to make it harder for
12:47
predators not going to stop them
12:49
sometimes that’s why I need a bigger
12:51
piece of wood because then I know that
12:53
there’d be no way that you’re getting
12:55
through all right oh okay we’re ready to
13:01
bring up nothing
13:03
the cage is secure from the outside so
13:07
what I water over here all right I just
13:14
push my shoulder it in just there and
13:17
the seeds don’t put them too close to
13:19
the water because um
13:21
they’ll put water into the seeds and
13:24
everything go like cement to be really
13:27
hard to clean it so keep the seeds just
13:29
a little bit away from the water I like
13:32
to keep some over here overflow it a
13:35
little bit okay come with me we’re going
13:38
to get this hey sit down
13:40
okay so
13:43
as I said right there we have our seed
13:48
we have our shell grips and the water
13:51
okay so it’s pretty simple with some hay
13:54
just throw it and the ducks will
13:57
actually have a good time themselves the
14:00
Ducks like she had a good time
14:01
themselves setting it up and making it
14:04
all pretty good don’t worry yourself too
14:07
much about laying BR the hay out unless
14:11
they’re ducklings
14:12
okay as ducks they know what to do
14:17
[Music]
14:36
okay there’s the finished package
14:40
remember guys I’ve never class you have
14:42
to do this every three days and where
14:46
are we
14:47
and with the pool of water here and
14:49
checks what are you doing come here
14:51
come you too okay so with this water you
14:56
cannot yet you can fill that once every
14:57
week or two if you let it go dirty then
15:01
the mosquitoes actually put their eggs
15:03
in now their larvae and that will turn
15:06
into like a little swimming insects and
15:09
these guys love it
15:11
they either it’s not dirty to them but
15:15
it’s dirty for us okay so don’t worry
15:19
about it
15:20
I’ll probably change that in the next
15:23
couple days but like I said they do
15:25
enjoy it and I change it they get a bit
15:27
annoyed again so that guys is how to
15:31
look after your ducks sorry it actually
15:36
required a bit of explanation there’s
15:39
just lots of factors that your Ducks can
15:40
actually be affected by like predators
15:42
and there’s the shell grip factor and
15:45
there’s all these little things you need
15:46
to know about your Ducks a big question
15:48
that everyone was asked to me was where
15:51
did I get my harness from okay I got it
15:54
from ebay what I typed in was chicken
15:58
harness or hand harness one that icky
16:01
uses the hen size so I believe the hen
16:03
flies like a it’s a large and the
16:06
rooster sizes and extra large so I hope
16:08
that helps with some harnesses and
16:11
sizing okay
16:12
so soon guys I’m actually going to be
16:14
opening up a merchandise store and I’m
16:17
going to have a lot of duck accessories
16:18
in there we’ll stay tuned guys have a
16:21
look at the civils of Nicki and Ajax are
16:24
fighting so there’s EFI full-on chases
16:30
Ajax through the yard okay come here
16:33
what’s going on are you getting bullied
16:36
from uncle icky huh
16:38
I think he is hey okay hey okay sit down
16:46
put down good boy shakey thank you fool
16:51
are you getting bullied from the dark
16:53
the captivity is we’ve definitely grown
16:57
up Ajax is a Staffordshire Terrier he’s
17:00
got a bit of American and English in him
17:02
so he’s going to be a little bit bigger
17:04
than this what you doing with a mister
17:07
and not for you hey dogs love to eat
17:10
this sort of stuff if they do just as
17:15
long as you don’t buy the medicated
17:16
feeds the dog will be okay so AJ seats
17:19
that it makes them cool a lot but apart
17:21
from that this week I hope that helps
17:23
guys with your duck journey oh that’s
17:26
right I was going to tell you about a
17:27
story someone actually bought a duck
17:30
okay
17:31
they sent me photos they like look we
17:34
got these ducks because of you you
17:36
inspired I smells like yeah that’s so
17:37
cool thank you for sending me photos so
17:40
they send me photos a week later two
17:43
weeks later of ruffled feathers
17:47
everywhere a bit of blood this person
17:51
obviously hadn’t taken the steps that
17:53
I’ve explained in this video
17:54
predators came in the middle of a night
17:56
and unfortunately killed their ducks I
18:00
don’t think the Ducks are anywhere to be
18:01
seen there was just feathers and blood
18:03
around but that’s why it’s important
18:06
guys if you do get ducks or chickens
18:08
just listen to some of the steps they
18:11
gave you here in this video and do some
18:13
of your own research and I know you’ll
18:14
be okay so it’s a very fun journey
18:17
buying your own duckling or chicken
18:19
defining to fight
18:25
look at this behavior look at my duck
18:30
aqui it’s not very nice they fight like
18:34
this on a regular basis
18:36
actually have to break it up because of
18:38
the dark will hurt the puppy believe it
18:41
or not the puppy can definitely hurt the
18:43
duck but he knows that he’s not allowed
18:45
to so the Ducks because the duck doesn’t
18:48
listen as much as the puppy the dark
18:50
ends up hurting the puppy so I have to
18:52
break up the fight anyway guys thanks
18:55
for tuning in I hope those duck tips
18:58
helped if you have any more questions
19:00
just lay them down in the comments below
19:02
I’ll try my best to answer them and if
19:05
needed I’ll make another video to you
19:06
guys alright thanks for tuning in I’ll
19:08
