    OK, I had NO intentions of ever getting ducks, but my daughter fell in love at the feed store and now I own 3. What kind of housing do they need? I believe they are Pekin, but I could be wrong. [​IMG] Any help would be appreciated. I am at a complete loss as to where to keep these in my yard!!!

    I am new to ducks also. See my website and maybe you can get some ideas from what we have done. So far they have been really easy to take care of. Craigslist is a GREAT place to find something cheap or even free. Doesn't have to be fancy because they don't even want to go in a structure. ENJOY!! You won't be sorry, they are quite fun and entertaining!!
