I'm wanting to try and convince my dad to get me 2 ducklings real soon, so I've been reading up on them. I've read many posts about their messiness, but most of those people had 5+ ducks and I would only get two. I have a large front yard (35+ feet in length and 25+ feet in width) that includes a 3.5ft deep pond that they could swim in as adults. I have raised chicks and have 7 chickens currently and think ducks would be a great addition! I would just like to know just about how messy they would be, thanks!
