I need to go work with my ducks for a bit - I will be looking this over - great idea!  Have you seen the sticky on Raising Ducklings?

And Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks is helpful.  I like The Ultimate Pet Duck Guidebook, as my flock are treated mostly like pets.

 

I will get back to this as I can.  I may need to respond a bit at a time.

There's some good looking info on here. I don't know a lot myself yet, though I'm considering how to separate my male seeing as they are free range, it's difficult

12 Ducks... and 2 seasonal ducks technically..... Lady is a KC cross with Indian Runner, as are her 11 ducklings, the seasonal 2 are Zazu (ended up being a female), a mallard, and her boyfriend Dr. Drake
