    I was looking to see what other birds can live with ornamental ducks and u couldn't find much. What other birds can live with ducks like geese, cranes, pheasants. More of the ornamental type

    Those are all awesome! In general would they get along if given enough space?

    Haha that's pretty cool! I am currently building my aviary but I have wood ducks and tree ducks on waiting list and will be getting them this year and possible mandarins and a few teals this year also.

    Their website is going through construction so emails are getting lost so might be a week or two before you can contact them. Go look on website it has a contact category

    Thanks I just found the contact category. Maybe I'll get some lapwings in the future. I'd like to see how the ducks are first. Is care pretty easy for them?
