How many ducks are suitable for raising ducks for the first time? Factors that affect the number of ducks for the first time include the size of the site, the prevention and control of diseases, the allocation of feed, the structure of the duck house, and the mastery of breeding techniques. So what should beginners pay attention to when raising ducks? How to build a duck house when raising ducks for the first time?

What should a novice pay attention to when raising ducks?


1. Selection of duck seedlings

The selection of ducklings should follow the principle of four observations. First, check whether the eyes of the ducklings can be opened normally. Is unqualified, try not to buy. Second, check whether the mouth and limbs of the ducklings are ruddy, moist and shiny. If they are relatively dry, such seedlings cannot be purchased. The third is to look at the belly button, the navel of high-quality ducklings is clean; the fourth is to look at the duck feet, the duck feet of good ducklings are more moist and very satisfying when standing up.

2. The temperature of the brooding room

Ducklings have weak resistance to the external environment, so they need a suitable temperature for growth. Ducklings with better physiques do not have very high-temperature requirements, with a minimum temperature of 32 degrees, while ducklings with weaker physiques have slightly higher temperature requirements. , around 36-37 degrees. The temperature can be adjusted reasonably according to the mental state of the ducklings. If there are no feed and no activity, it depends on whether the temperature is too low or the preheating work is not done well. The humidity of the duck house can be kept at 60%-65% for a week, and the minimum should not be lower than 55%. If you only pay attention to the temperature and not the humidity, it will cause the humidity to fluctuate. The two are also closely related. Humidity For every 1% decrease, the temperature will also decrease.

3. Selection of duck breeding sites

The scientific selection of duck farms cannot be ignored for traffic. First of all, epidemic prevention and isolation must be considered to ensure safe production. Keep a long distance from residential areas. Considering that the products and feed of the duck farm are transported in a large volume, while considering the epidemic prevention and isolation, it is also necessary to choose nearby plots with good transportation conditions to achieve both epidemic prevention safety and transportation.

4. Raising ducks in winter


The temperature in winter is low, and it is a difficult period for raising ducks. A little carelessness will cause great losses. Therefore, if you want to raise ducks in winter, you must check the duck house in time to avoid holes, In the case of air leakage, once found, it should be repaired in time. In order to avoid freezing damage caused by low temperatures in winter. Don’t take it lightly after repairing it. If conditions permit, you can put some heat preservation equipment in the duck house, especially for the newly born ducklings. In addition, the drinking water in winter is best to be warm, so as not to cause colds and other diseases in the ducks. epidemic.

How many ducks are suitable for raising ducks for the first time?

How many ducks are suitable for raising ducks for the first time? The number of ducks to be raised for the first time depends on the size of the site we can provide and secondly depends on our mastery of the breeding technology. If there is no breeding experience, no professional technical teacher is required. It is recommended to start raising 500 ducks for the first time. rise.

How to build a duck house when raising ducks for the first time?

The most basic requirements are sunshade and sun protection, protection from wind and rain, protection against cold and heat, and prevention of animal damage. The depth of each commercial egg duck house is 8-10 meters, and the width is 7-8 meters. It is similar to a square, which is convenient for the ducks to move around in the house. The duck house must not be divided into narrow rectangles, otherwise, the ducks will enter the house when they circle. , very easy to trample on and cause injury. Usually, small duck farms with a scale of 1,000 to 2,000 are built with 2 to 4 rooms (each with about 500 ducks), and then 3 small rooms are built on the side as warehouses, feed rooms, and dormitories for management personnel.

Building area estimation: Due to the different breeds, ages and climates of ducks, the requirements for the area of duck houses are also different. Therefore, when building a duck house to calculate the building area, it is necessary to leave room and relax the plan appropriately; but when using the duck house, it is necessary to plan carefully to make full use of the building area and improve the utilization rate of the duck house.


The principle of using duck houses is that within a unit area, the stocking density can be increased in winter and more should be raised appropriately; Appropriately smaller; the duck house with a large sports field can have a higher stocking density, and the duck house with a small sports field should have a lower stocking density.

Precautions for raising large numbers of ducks

Precautions for raising a large number of ducks, hygiene, and safety are very important, we must pay attention to this aspect. Today we are talking about ducklings that are basically adults, not baby ducklings. In fact, for farmers who raise ducks in large quantities, there are generally two breeding methods, one is free-range breeding, and the other is concentrated breeding of Dapeng.

First of all, let's talk about free-range breeding. The so-called free-range breeding is to put them in a delimited field, and then let the ducks basically rely on eating wild vegetables to grow. In fact, the ducks raised in this kind of free-range breeding are indeed much better than those raised in collective captivity. They forage for food by walking, which also allows them to exercise their muscles to make duck meat more chewy. Another very important aspect is the infection of bacteria. We know that in a closed space with no air circulation, it is easy to spread various viruses and bacteria.

But this kind of open-air breeding will not happen, nor will there be a phenomenon that if one duck gets sick, it will infect the whole flock. Next, let's talk about the latter we mentioned earlier, which is to lock them in a farm for breeding. This is what we commonly call greenhouse farming. In fact, the ducks raised in the greenhouse are like the flowers in the greenhouse we describe.

Both in terms of physical resistance and self-care ability, they are much worse than the ducks we mentioned in the open air. So for this kind of disease, we must pay attention to whether there is a source of infection or the prevention of various infectious diseases. The most fundamental thing is to clean the duck house in the shed regularly and spray various disinfection sprays after each cleaning.


Another point is that no matter what kind of animals are bred, they must be regularly vaccinated. On the one hand, it is to enhance their body resistance, and on the other hand, it is also to prevent the production and spread of various bacterial viruses. The most important part we are going to talk about today is about the injection of this vaccine, and the control of hygiene. If a sick duck is found, it must be isolated and treated as soon as possible.
