I would ultimately like to end up with 3-4 ducks. How likely is it or how common is it to have a duck die in the first year? How many ducks should I order? I am making a Co-op order from Metzerfarms. They will replace any deceased ducks with in the first 24 hours. I live in a rural community in Idaho. I have a wooden fenced in yard. I have two dogs that are good with other animals. A border collie about 8 years and a boxer about 4. Please let me know what you think?
