Hi I am considering getting some flying ducks (I mean hatching fertilised eggs). Will they return home if they fly away? I have 3/4 of an acre and am going to put at least a mini-bath tub if not a pond on it.
We have Rouen ducks that can fly, only get up about 8 feet or so. The fly from their duck house to my pond (about 60 yards or so). They shouldn’t fly away if they’re raised as pets like ours are. It doesn’t seem like they have any interest in going anywhere else other than around the pond and back to the duck house as that’s how we trained them.
