I am considering adding a single duck to my flock. My daughter insists that she be accompanied by a chicken while in her kiddie pool. So, needless to say, I have rescued my hens on many occasions! To solve this constant life guarding, I thought it would be easier to just get the kid a darned duck! But I don't want to get one just to have it be miserable. Can it live on the coop floor and be happy, with special accommodations, with the flock of hens? And would a female or male be best? I really like those crested pekin ducks. They are hilarious!
