Hi! I am new here, but have been a lurker for a while now My husband and I are going to be adding a few hens to our "critter" family. However, I would love to include a pekin duck or two (but am researching everything about them before making my decision). My concern is the maintenance of the daily water change for a kiddie pool (which is what I am leaning towards rather than installing a pond). We live on a small lake/large pond that is surrounded by some other houses. The only boat that is ever out there is an occasional canoe. We have flocks of muscovy ducks that go from home to home and visit everyone so the people on this pond are very duck friendly. My question is this: If the ducklings are raised with us, over time, will they see our house as their "home" and return if I let them venture out there to play on the pond? Or would this be a bad idea? Someone has told me this is possible, but I would like other opinions. I am worried about them not returning home. Or the muscovys picking on them.
