We have had chickens for the last two years, and as I was going over what I should have on the farm.. well, ducks came to mind. Lots of peaple say ducks are much better than chickens. I have always stood up for my clucking friends but I have never met a domestic duck- so I cant compare. I have a 20ft by 10ft pen, with a three and a half foot fence. I was using this for rabbits, and some extra silkie roosters. I know that anything with wings could get over that, even by fat BR with clipped wings can jump it. I dont mind if they get out, as long as ducks dont go far. Its mostly for keeping kids out than keeping things in (They are in a petting zoo). I was thinking I wanted call ducks, but I cant find a breeder around here, or large hatcheries that breed them. I want ducklings, not adults. What other breeds could I consider? I want smaller ducks, as they will be pets. I was thinking around three of them. I have a 3ft by 3ft dog house that the silkies are in but they are moving out, will this be an OK shelter for them?
