Hello everyone I am thinking of getting some ducks and possibly a few chickens but I have a few questions. I found a place in my area that sells Pekin and Khaki Campbell hatching eggs for sale. They also have Barred Rock and N.H Pullet hatching eggs.
So I'll start with some of my questions:
1. Does anyone know if ducks/chickens are legal in Toronto, Ontario?
2. I live in a urban area, are ducks/chickens going to be too loud? My neighbors are about 5ft away from the fence.
3. If I can't keep them in a urban area I could take them to my cottage where noise/space would not be a problem. The only thing is we only go up there on the weekends. I found a few diy feeders/waterers on the internet so food/water would not be a problem, plus my neighbors could check up on them. Would it be okay if they are left alone for the 5 days every week (on the weekend I would clean their cage and refill feeders)
4. What is a good size enclosure? I was thinking 4-6 ducks and 3-4 chickens. How about 12'x12' or 20'x12'. Space isn't really a problem but I don't want it to be huge.
