Hi I am totally new to ducks and chickens and don´t actually have any yet.
I have found this site very helpful but there is so much information on the internet that I would like to ask a few specific questions please.
We are wanting to get a couple of ducklings and a couple of chicks. I wasn´t wanting any males is this OK to only have females.
We have a spare bit of land that measures 1,000 square meters (10,763 square feet) It is fenced and walled but one side is only about 4 feet high is this high enough as I will want to clipp their wings.
We still need to sort out some sort of accomodation for them.
We don´t seem to have any foxes or anything else that may harm them in this area but do have owls and one or two other birds of prey.
I am wanting them to be as free range as possible during the day but will put them in their house at night time.
I am wanting to keep them purely for eggs and would never dream of eating them. We are also wanting them to be tame and family pets.
I need to know is there a cut off point for getting them where they wont bond and be friendly.
