    I have 4 Ancona ducklings.I have found them to be very fast maturing.They already are quacking and I even know boys from girls.

    A few questions:

    Are they large ducks?
    Do they have feathers on their feet,cause mine do....
    When do they start to mate?
    Do they fly?

    They are a medium weight duck.
    I have never seen ducks with feathers on their feet.
    Not sure when they start breeding.
    No they cannot fly.
