hi i have 8 ducks there all a mix of some sort except for my pekin most of them can fly a little but( lift itself up off the ground). i have them right now living in an addition on the outside of my chicken house. they have the chicken house and everything around it looking horrible its all muddy and everything. i have a kiddie pool for them now and tey make it brown as soon as i let them in it. i have a pond like 100-150 yards from my house and its sort of in a valley in a way. it is surrounded by woods and I HAVE NEVER EVER SEEN WILD DUCKS IN IT BEFORE MAYBE A HERON BUT THATS IT.i was wondering if they would do ok if i took them down to the pond to live because i hate the way my chicken house looks. they are free-ranging right now and they also go up to the house and trash the flowers beds where there is any standing water. i hate that. it also makes my house look bad when i have guests. i was wondering if that would be ok to take them down there to live. like i said ther can fly,only 4 out of the eight cant fly so i was just wondering.
