Normally I would start with a flannel all over the body moving up to a towel and so on until I get to a fleece rug, is this the way forward with an Exmoor who was born on the moor? Or should I approach it differently? I don’t plan to rug him all year but I do want to get him used to wearing one if necessary.

I was wondering if you could help me. How long do recently purchased adult runner ducks need to be kept in their run before release?

Chris Aston replies The answer is (as it usually does), that it depends. It depends on their age and behaviour which will be based on their previous circumstances, as well as yourself and the area they are kept in . Personally, we keep birds in a securely fenced area to exclude dogs and foxes. Pig netting is not secure because it will let the ducks out through the holes.
