    So I have found an aviary for sale, and I have been intrested in getting a few ornamental waterfowl for a while now. I was thinking of Mandarins (since I've heard that they are good beginner ducks, Carolinas (Wood Ducks), or Fulvous/Blonde Tree Ducks.

    It's a 6 foot x 8 foot shed, with a 6 foot x 6 foot run either side, and I'm wondering if it would be suitable to keep ornamental waterfowl in, and if so, how many?

    WOW, nice aviary! Would love to have one like it. I'm sorry I can't help you with your question. Only waterfowl I have are a couple swans that have their own yard and a nice house with run they stay in nights for safety. In your case if research doesn't provide a number maybe start with a few and see how it goes. You can always add more.
