Did you ever hear back from that lady? Wondering if her ducklings survived?Calls still coming in for chicks and ducklings. Hubby and I went back to the farm this morning, and picked up an other 2 doz eggs to set. I'm so excited. Most of these eggs, I got to hand pick and they are blue. Meaning... good chance that they are IR!
Spent almost 1/2 hour on phone with one of the duckling buyers. She described signs of full blown Vitamin E encephalopathy. So, after doing a complete questioning of every little detail of her set up, I found that her feed had a mill date of Jan 20. OLD FEED! She stated that the bag had an expiration date of some time in October. How can feed companies get away with this???? She is also using 250W heat lamp on them in the house. So, we talked about THAT. This gal was trying to do everything just perfect. Obviously, I need to write up a fact sheet and give it to every single customer. Hopefully, she can get them medicated in time to save their lives.
