    I have a pair of domestic and then I have a pair of manderins and versicolor talingen but this is there Dutch name. If I can get boxes for both would be good but most of the ducks I will get will be or ornamental. My pen is 14 metres wide and 20 long how many duck could I house. And can I place a couple of casaroba swans with them ?
