I just recently, 8 days ago to be exact, added 5 Mallard ducklings to my family. I am in love and must admit quite obsessed with them. They currently have two places to live, inside complete with pool, house, and lots of room to play and outside with a much larger pool and access to grass, bugs, etc. I am very over protective of them only allowing them out of their mobile duck house with supervision. Once grown they will be moved to their permanent home which will be about 1/2 acre of fenced land with a special duck pond built just for them. (Photos to come) I am so glad I found this forum as my little friends have been doing some weird stuff that I am so relieved to find is normal.
