    Oaky here are my questions:
    1) are they cold hardy
    2) do they fly
    3) what do they eat
    4) can more than one pair be keep together or if I can put other ducks in with them
    5) do they go broody often
    6) I saw these at meyers hatchery they where sold in pairs and I was wondering if anyone has ordered duck pairs from them
    7) do they need a pen with plants in it

    Thanks [​IMG]

    If they experts don't see it later you might try and post it in the Migratory and ornamental waterfowl thread found in the stickies.

    the way, thats a decent price for the chiloes.

    2) Yes they fly unless you by them pinioned
    4) You can keep them in a mixed collection
    5) Only in spring, if they do at all
    6) Good price on them [​IMG]
    7) yes, the more cover they have the safer they will feel and the greater chance of them going broody
