We have 42 acres of land down by the river. On one side it is bordered by state land (trout ponds) and on the other there is a gentleman who keeps about 8 cows. No house or anything just cattle pasture. On our 42 acres there are 3 ponds. One is quite large with an island in the middle and two are somewhat smaller. Near the large pond we are building a small cabin. No electricity just a rustic little getaway. We spend quite a bit of time down there. My garden is there about 1 1/2 acres! Here is the thing... My DH and I are wondering if we could get a couple of pairs of ducks to keep near the large pond. There are some wood ducks that nest each year in one of the smaller ponds. Our questions now are... 1. What kind of duck should we be looking at?? 2. What kind of shelter would they need for winter?? Or should we move them to our home in winter?? 3. Would they stay around or would we have to clip wings etc. This is a new adventure we are thinking of starting and of course I thought of all you and how great you are at answering questions. I appreciate all the help and thank you in advance.
