Do you know how fast the Indots grow? Breeding and keeping the bird without much trouble!
What are good in the household of Indotka? The breeding and maintenance of these birds, in contrast to other species, allows in some cases to dispense with a pond or other body of water, which is required by ordinary ducks, tk. in nature such a breed of birds nests on trees. However, if there is some water space, the feeding procedure will be somewhat easier, because Indotka feeds on weeds, beetles, worms, can use kitchen waste, beet tops, corn, etc. In addition, birds make hissing sounds instead of quacking, which creates a low noise level.
What tricks are forbidden if you have an indoteck? The dilution and content of the thermophilic species assumes that the temperature in the poultry house should not drop below 5 ° C (heating in winter is necessary). Because ducks are very sensitive paws, they are not recommended to be kept without litter. The floor in the mattress should be covered with a thick layer of fir branches and dry straw so that the bird does not damage its limbs. In addition, ducks should not be allowed to go out into the street at negative temperatures, but also drink hot water or give hot food.
How productive are Indots? Breeding and maintaining them is quite profitable, because the bird grows quickly on the fodder, gives low-fat meat, feathers, fluff and eggs. Meat products from indotok (musk ducks) are especially appreciated in gastronomy, tk. have low fat content, high content of useful amino acids, a gentle smell and taste. From one duck during the year you can get about one and a half hundred large eggs (up to 70 grams).
Breeding indotok as a business should take into accounta number of features of this kind. For example, farmers report that during incubation a rather low yield of ducklings (up to half) is observed, so they should be hatched (the yield will increase to 90-95%). The poultry is kept for meat for about 3 months, at the same time to obtain a good quality product, Indotests need to be well fed for 70-80 days before slaughter. The average weight of drakes can be up to 5 kg, the weight of ducks is about 2.5 kg. At the age of about 8 months, Indots are already able to lay eggs. On average, they are carried about 5 months, after which they molt and enter the second phase of oviposition.
How to obtain products from theIndotecs? Breeding and maintenance suggests that birds will live in "families" of 2-4 ducks per drake. For the cultivation of ducklings at the age after 3 weeks it will take about 12 square meters. meters for a herd of 8 ducks and 6 males. At an earlier age, about 20 ducklings can live in this area. For good oviposition, the bird should have a warm "bed" - a good bedding, as well as a fence from stresses, including those obtained from communication with other individuals (ducks - "layers" should be separated from the general contingent).
Indotka, the content of which does not representspecial difficulties, is a bird that very effectively absorbs food, it is not very susceptible to avian typhus, plague, diphtheria and other diseases, it has an attractive appearance. Therefore, many recommend it for both industrial use and for decorating the household as a decorative bird.
