I need help to keep and raise ducks! Pls somebody!

Hello

Recently i completed a short course on Poultry. During the course we mainly focused on Broiler Layer meat and egg production brooding of day old chicks and related matters of chicken layer and broiler hens. There was no information about ducks other then that ducks only have 2 disease. Duck cholera and duck plegue. They are powerful then hens in terms of disease resistance. They lay 250-300 eggs for 3 years and they collect their 70% food from Pond. Their wastage is food of pond and fish. There is khakhi Campbell and Indian Runner in our country plus a pakistani duck strain.


I want to setup a duck keeping and raising firm with 2000 ducks.

First i do not have any kind of pond.

I want to keep them in 5000 square feet Poultry shade. And then i want to arrange 2feet deep water for them around the firm. My question is how can i setup such indoor pondless firm for ducks. I need image reference info or video about it. Space requirement etc. I have about 15000 square feet land area with 5000 square feet poultry shade. At first i thought to do broiler firm there. But now i want to switch to ducks.

Somebody please help with duck housing and water without pond. Also how much i should feed to a laying duck per day. WHat to feed her per day etc.

THank you in advance. [-o<
