So I've been desperate to get some cayuga ducks for a while now! I've waited on 3 batches of eggs from 3 different people but none have been successful for one reason or another. I am hoping to hatch my own when we come back off holiday in a few weeks. The longer I've been waiting the more research I've been doing and I am wondering if ducks would be good pets for us! I don't have the largest of back gardens. It's about 10 1/2 metres by around 4 metres. I was thinking they could just have run of the full garden and then go in the house I have for them at night. Is this space okay for 2 or 3 ducks!? I also have 2 children so I am thinking I know ducks poo alot, and with me not having the biggest of gardens I am guessing my grass isn't going to be a pleasant place for my kids to play haha!? Is the poop easy enough to hose off to clean the grass or will I be saying goodbye to my grass all together ha? Also I know they can be smelly. Is it really that bad when are outside? I will obviously keep them as clean as possible but wouldn't want next door to get annoyed if they can smell them over the fence! I would really really love some but wouldn't want to get some for it to jot work out or for them to be unhappy with the space they have so any advice but I get some would be great. Thanks!
