Hello, I don't have a lot of time to search through posts and read tons of old threads, but was hoping that someone had a resource where I can get an easier way to find what I'm looking for. I have 4 fawn & white runner ducks that I was trying to re-home. I really don't have the resources or time to do anything elaborate, and they are just getting stinky, wet and dirty in their brooder box in the garage. They are now 4 weeks old, and love to splash in their drinking water, but it's been a little too cold outside to bring them outdoors. They are also kind of hard to catch because of my poor brooder design (it's too tall and too big... they keep getting away, and they are slippery and slimy right now). I hate to see them so dirty and yucky, and was hoping that I could find someone who wanted them. It looks like they might be stuck with me. Without spending a ton of money, I need to know what ducks need for secure housing. Is it the same as chickens? Will they come in at night, or will I have to chase them? Do you lock them in at night? What kind of treats and fun things can you give them? I don't have a pond or lake, but we do have a little kiddy pool for them. They haven't tried it yet. If I build a pen for them, what size does it need to be? I was thinking of doing a tractor-type thing, that can be moved around the yard, and letting them out during the daytime. There will be a few occasions this summer when I will be gone for a few days at a time. Can they stay in a small pen for a few days without suffering too much? Please help. I feel overwhelmed and want to be a good mom to these cute babies. Thanks!
