I have been wanting ducks for a while now and my hubby is not really sure about the idea. I only want 2 or 3 (but if that's anything like chickens that number multiplies very quickly). I know nothing about ducks!!! We have just been chicken people up until now. What I would like to know is well..anything you think I should know about ducks. Some specific questions I have are 1) How many square feet do ducks need when they are full grown? 2)Do they have a special find of feed for ducks? 3) Do they need a duck house and if so what needs to be in it? 4) How long does it take a duck to mature? 5) Pros and Cons of ducks? 6) I currently have chickens, Do ducks need a completely seperate pen from the chickens? 7) I would like a smaller breed duck, What kind of duck do you recommend? I really am a newbie and would like to have all my ducks in a row () before getting anything ducklings. They are just so cute and hard to resist. Any advice would be great!!!
