Hello all. I am from the NW suburbs of Chicago. I have been comtemplating getting some eggs to hatch and raise here. I have never had any experience with ducklings and would need a lot of help. I have a fairly large yard and a pond next to my house. I would love if the ducks could live there after they are fully grown. Can anyone tell me what I am getting myself into? I am especially curious how much the full-grown ducks will rely on me for their survival. Thank you all.
