I'm wondering if anyone here has kept a duck as pet indoor/outdoor. My son is in the middle of a science experiment which includes chicken and duck eggs. We are not allowed in our township to have livestock, and already he is asking to keep one hatchling as a pet. We live in a lake community and often have ducks/geese in our yard so if someone happened to see the duck it wouldn't be too out of place. It's great seeing a teenager interested in something besides computers and xbox games. My questions are: Can you keep a duck indoors? Can a duck make a good pet for a thirteen and two year old? Do ducks get along with other pets? How do you house your duck? Does it sleep indoors or out? Anyone use ducky diapers? Nothing has hatched yet, and am doing my homework on this one before any decision is made. Please be gentle if my questions seem obvious, stupid or niave....remember I'm a newbie.
