Reasonable feeding: Provide high-quality feed, such as wheat, corn, bean cake, etc., according to the growth stage and nutritional needs of the ducks. And control the type and amount of feed to meet the nutritional needs of ducks during their growth. Timed feeding: Feeding is carried out at a fixed time every day, usually divided into 2-3 times. Feeding should be uniform to avoid waste or diarrhea caused by excess or insufficient. Keep the water source clean: Ducks need a lot of water. Make sure the water source is clean. You can use an open sink or an automatic waterer. The water source should be changed and cleaned regularly. Add feed additives: Add appropriate feed additives as needed, such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, etc., to improve the duck's immunity and growth rate.

Regular veterinary examinations: Ask your veterinarian to examine your ducks regularly, screen for diseases, and take preventive measures based on the examination results. Follow your veterinarian's advice and handling advice. Keep the environment clean: Clean the pens regularly, change bedding materials, and use disinfectant to prevent the growth of bacteria and parasites. At the same time, feeding and drinking water facilities must also be cleaned and disinfected regularly. Prevent cross-infection: Try to avoid contact between ducks from different batches or ducks from unknown sources to reduce the risk of cross-infection. In addition, avoid mixing ducks with other poultry (such as chickens and geese) to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

Control stocking density: Maintain a reasonable stocking density in the pen to avoid overcrowding. Reasonable stocking density can help reduce competition and food competition between ducks and reduce the risk of disease transmission. Choose a suitable duck breed: Choose a suitable duck breed for breeding based on local climate conditions, market demand, growth rate and other factors. Common suitable breeds include Peking duck, corn duck, etc. Choosing suitable varieties according to actual conditions can help improve breeding efficiency. The above are the methods and techniques of duck breeding. In addition, it is also very important to observe the growth of ducks and prevent diseases.

Buy ducklings back about 40 days before the late rice harvest, place soft straw on the indoor floor, and use small stalls to separate the chicks. Keep the room temperature at 20°C to 26°C. Ducks have the habit of sleeping in clusters. Therefore, they should be gently pushed up by hand every once in a while to prevent the ducklings from being squeezed to death.

When the ducklings are 15 days old, they can be gradually put into a small pool for training. The initial time in the pool should be appropriately short, and then the time in the pool can be gradually extended. The ducklings should be fed with feed in time after they come ashore and return to the shed. After the ducklings are 30 days old, they should be raised in a small field first, and bamboo poles with objects that move in the wind (such as colorful cloth strips or plastic food bags, etc.) should be inserted around the small field to prevent the ducks from running out of the designated area.

Three, rush to raise. Starting from the early-harvested plots, gradually move to the later-harvested rice fields. You can also put appropriate water in the field for the ducks to forage freely. The location of the duck shed should be moved according to the change of the ducks' grazing location. At night, the ducks are driven around the shed to spend the night, and appropriate supplementary feed is provided. 4. Things to note. It is not advisable to keep ducks in deep grass, large ridges, etc., to prevent the ducks from being harmed by snakes, weasels, etc. In addition, autumn ducks lay a lot of eggs, so you can choose to leave some strong individuals to overwinter and lay eggs in order to obtain greater profits.
