New Duck Breeds 2019

If you’re hoping to add some spice to your flock, good news, we have new duck breeds coming in this year.

Golden 300 Hybrid 

This breed was developed in 1996 to produce larger eggs, and more often. These calm, social ducks have a quiet demeanor and are rarely broody. The eggs they lay are 80% of the time white but some hens will lay blue eggs.

 

Silver Apple Yard

Described as a lighter colored mallard, these ducks grow very rapidly, lay well and make a great domestic pet. These ducks are used for both meat and egg production. They can easily grow a clutch of 10-12 eggs.

 

Duclair 

The Duclair duck is very calm in nature and very easy to tame. They are considered a good duck for the beginners and they’re very good as pets. They are good egg layers, laying about 80-100 blueish-green eggs a year. They are excellent foragers, feasting on any insects but their favorites are slugs and snails.

 

Dormant Spray and Pruning Season is Here

The start of a new year brings us the best time to complete winter dormant spraying, and fruit tree pruning. Dormant spray applications are an ideal treatment for almost all ornamental trees and shrubs, but especially for fruit trees. This treatment eliminates over-wintering insects and their eggs, plus it is very helpful providing disease abatement on plants too. Burns Feed Store carries dormant spray oil and copper fungicides in both organic and conventional forms. The oil and copper can be used in combination. The oil smothers all insects and insect eggs, and aids the copper fungicide in providing disease control. We also carry many different types of sprayers in several sizes that can be used to apply the dormant spray treatment.

Fruit trees should be trimmed each year as part of a regular maintenance program. The trees can be pruned now through late winter, up until bud break.  They will need thinning, sucker and deadwood removal, and some occasional height reduction. Burns Feed Store has the tools and equipment you need to complete the job.  We carry many types of hand pruners, loppers, saws, and pole-pruners.  Rakes, tarps, trash cans and trash bags are here to help with clean-up. Work gloves, rain gear, rubber boots, and safety gear is available if you need this to help you complete the work.  Please stop in and check out our product line for winter dormant spraying and pruning.  Our helpful staff can guide you in selecting the appropriate products and equipment you will need to complete your specific job.
