I'm going to be getting ducks soon. The plan is 2 ducks. I already have 7 chickens (just over 1 year old), but I'm thinking about making (or buying) a new duck coop and putting it right next to the chicken coop with their very own run (since ducks are extremely messy and play in water). I'll let them free range with the chickens and I will get some kind of water container for them to swim in. Since I am 100% new to ducks, and new to backyard poultry in general, I want to know some tips for raising and keeping ducks, and if anyone knows a good online guide to keeping them also. I'm so excited!
