    Hi!

    Have you taken a look at the stickies? We have worked on getting some of the best information we have all concentrated there. Perhaps you could look through that and then get back to this thread with more questions. We love writing about ducks.

    Here's a hint: water management. Very different for ducks, and absolutely critical for your enjoyment of them, if not your own sanity.
