I went to get a couple pullets and ended up with a rouan duckling too. I have it in with the two pullets I got in a very large (4 feet x 4 feet) box and it's eating and drinking and seems to be getting along well with the chicks. What do I need to know about raising a duck? Can it be happy without another duck and just hang out with the chickens? What do they do in winter when there's a foot of snow on the ground and all the water is frozen? I thought wild ducks flew south for the winter. Thanks! It was just too cute and I thought it wouldn't be that different than chickens, so I bought it, but the more I think about it, the more I'm realizing there might be some differences I hadn't thought of.
