    do I house ducks ? what does a duck house look like>? hi i'm kelley i sent my kid to the store for horse feed and i got `10 baby ducks instead modern day version of jack and the bean sstalk i guess :(
    I've read a lot of post and have learned alot but not how to house them so say keep them inclosed some say not.
    I'm going to weed out the males (should i keep one?) as soon as i figure out who is who I'll be looking for that tail feather thing and someone said they have a tuff on top of their heads correct? I have a loarge dog house that held two labs but will 10 ducks fit in a dog house ? will they want to be in a dog house? i've been told by u folks that they lay anywhere correct? and do it in holes? what id i get a sand pit will they like that ? for egg laying? do i bring them inside in winter? i'm told they freee up di i have to heat the duck house what ever that may be?

    help
