Ok.. So... Chickens, I know... Ducks? Not so much.. So, here's my list of Q's. 1) I'm expanding my run from 128SF to 448SF.. Any issue with keeping ducks in with my 3.5x larger chicken run? Chickens would have 30SF per bird in the run, not counting ducks. 2) Duck houses... I know people prefer the chicken coops to be walk in and I must say I love mine as such.. But the duck house.. They nest on the floor, right? 3) What do you do with your plastic duck ponds over winter? I'm planning on getting a large rubber or fiberglass watering trough. Should it be drained? 4) Anyone know much about the Gold Star sex-link ducks? I LOVE my sex-link chickens.. Great egg layers and have the BEST (friendliest) personality of all I have. What are the ducks like? 5) They say you can feed the same for ducks and chickens.. I use pellets.. Any issues with this? 6) What are the per bird requirements of square feet in the run and duck house? 7) Over the winter, what do you do for water, since they need to be able to submerge their bills? I'm looking for a layer breed which can't readily fly. The run will have 7' walls to it, which is more than enough to keep the chickens in. People say Cayugas are quiet, but most videos I'd seen, they talk up a storm.. The Rouens on the other hand had been quiet as mice? I don't mind some noise.. Just don't need to end up with anything as annoying as a guinea. Breeds I'm really considering: Gold Star Hybrid Khaki Cambell Runner Ducks Opinions on those breeds vs the other? Thanks! Want to see about getting some next season, so no time like NOW to get things planned out and built.
