    I am a new member (first post) and got two ducks. This is a great forum and I have been reading for the last a few days now.

    My co-worker picked up these two ducks on the road and she did not have space to house them so I adopted them.

    I know one of them is a Pekin duck but what is the other one? Also how old are they? 3 - 4 weeks?

    I had to quickly buy a dog kennel to house them (for during the day) and a stock tank as their swimming pool. We have two fish ponds (one koi and one goldfish) in the back yard and I will let them swim in the koi pond (20 feet by 40 feet) when they mature.

    Here are some pictures.

    Here is their kennel

    I am working on a house for them and here is a pic. I will build a 5' by 4.5' base (deck) and then use railing around it. They can then walk around the house with 1' of space around.

    Today they have been playing in the stock tank.
