Ducking Experience for Families!
When Spring comes, there is nothing like baby animals to provide children with the experience of watching them grow, examining the fuzz of a duckling, seeing them swim for the first time.
Woolley Wonderland Farm is pleased to provide the rent-a-duck program for families.
Available only from Easter Week on, you can have a pair of day old ducklings in your home.
You will need to provide: a tote, rabbit cage or even a cardboard box, keep them in a draft free area away from pets you may have, and we suggest a heat lamp or incandescent bulb for warmth.
We will provide you with:
2 baby ducklings
Food for at least 2 weeks
Water supplement (duckling gatorade) with vitamins
Food and Water Dishes
Handling Tips and Information Manual
Large bale of wood Shavings

Ducks love to splash and swim so using a waterproof bin is best for the duck housing in your home. Duck Water Secret- We find that setting their drinking water inside a larger pan helps to keep the sloppy mess down as Ducks Splash!
You can swim in the tub with ducks too! Our instruction manual has tips and tricks to make this safe and fun for the duckies and for you.

swim with ducklings
It's a fun experience for your young ones to have a baby duck swim about in the bathtub of slightly warm water. We suggest a bathing suit to be worn for photo opportunities and hygiene reasons.
Ducklings swim by instinct the day you get them ... but remember to only leave them in the water for 5 minutes on day one. You can increase the time as the week goes on. Mother Duck would transfer the oils from her feathers to the babies for water resistance. With no mama duck, they do get waterlogged. DUCKS MUST ALWAYS be supervised during swimming time.

double in size
The ducks will double in size over the first week and again in the second week. Honestly! They'll follow you around too.
When you're done, we meet up to take the ducks back to the farm. Our ducks are usually Pekins … yellow as ducklings with tiny peeps which grow into white ducks with orange beaks and legs.
We sometimes get other breeds such as Indian Runners, Khaki Campbell, fancy Crested Ducks and miniature ones too.
FEES for the RENTING BABY DUCKS for your family will be $100 +HST
