Saturday I brought home two ducklings from TSC. They had arrived Monday, so I figured since they had lived a week they were likely to continue living. :p Right now they are in our kitchen. We plan on getting a couple more once we get their pen built-if it ever stops raining long enough for us to build! With my luck both ducklings are male and we really want eggs. We already have three roosters and no hens -sigh.
I hope you don't have 2 drakes although with out females they would do fine together but may still try and mate with your rooster. So getting them females if that was to turn out that way would be a good idea. at least 3-4 females to 1 drake this keeps any one duck from being over mated and possibly injured.
They def need a secure over night dwelling alot of preds will dig and climb and be sure to use 1/2 inch hardware cloth to keep raccoons and other preds from ripping through they can rip right through chicken wire.. and they will reach through and grab and try to pull your ducks/chickens through any fencing if they can.
Congrats on your new duckling pics when you can
