Our ducks are hatched in a colony in Southern Alberta and shipped to Four Whistle Farm as day-old chicks. They live in our warm barn for a few weeks until they are ready to go outdoors, where they have lots of room to roam around and play in the water and mud that they love.
Our ducks eat a similar feed to the chickens, but with a uniquely formulated mineral suplement. Like all our feed, it is free of soy, animal by-products, medications, and hormones. It is a farm-ground feed of barley, wheat, green peas, some alfalfa. Our butcher for the ducks is Hairy Hill Colony found North of Vegreville. Established in the 1950s, this longstanding regional business serves only with the highest standards.
