We're newly weds, and I thought I had the whole communication thing down... "Honey what do you think about getting some chickens?" I asked. "Great idea" he said... then he came home with a Mallard! Maybe chicken means duck to men lol! She/he is a little piggy! Gets water from waterer everywhere!... poops bigger than chicks... but he is cute and we have it now so we are responsible now. We're currently designing our chicken coop, and I wonder if there is a way I can incorporate the duck into our plans. Or do I need to? What do you do with a Mallard? Does it need a buddy(It has been with three of our chicks since they all came home. Not sure if this is ok or not, but everyone seems happy and healthy. When can it live outside? I have so many questions I can't list them all. I just need a little guidance so that we can take care of the little guy. Thanks a bunch!
