If this has been covered elsewhere, please point me there. We have two enclosed chicken coop/runs, and I would love to keep some ducks for eggs. They'd have to be enclosed like the chickens, and I've heard both good and bad things about keeping ducks. My husband seems to think they're mean and dirty. I'm sure that's a generalization from his childhood years, but I wondered if I could get some down-and-dirty opinions/stories about keeping ducks for eggs and how involved their enclosure would have to be (I think I burned my engineer-husband out on the chicken enclosures We have 3 acres, half of that cleared, with no natural water features and plenty of predators about, hence the enclosures. I don't want to spend LOTS of time caring for them and wouldn't want to keep males unless it was recommended for some reason (we have two roosters, but they are incredibly docile and will be dispatched the minute they're not). Anybody?
