Sorry about the huge novel but here it is. Long story short. I have two ducks living in my garage at the moment. They were living on a farm with my cousin/bff but basically they kept getting attacked (I had four at the time but two got killed by a raccoon and/or mink). So they are now living in my garage in a dog cage (it is a bigger dog cage), safe. Ive had them for a little over a month in the cage. The only reason theyve been in the cage was because one of them got attacked and had a severe head injury (it took him 5 weeks to heal). But now hes all better. So they need somewhere bigger to live. My parents told me I could keep them so Im planning on building a shed in my backyard for them, with a little pool for them to swim in. I would make sure its big enough and has windows so they wouldnt live in the dark. But my question is how big would it have to be? One is a Cayuga (female) and the other one is a Cayuga/Indian Runner mix (male). So they arent huge ducks. Right now they are 14 weeks old. I won't be getting anymore ducks (when Im living here at least). The only reason I have these two is because I thought they were going to be able to live on a farm, safe. But that didn't work out. Unfortunately they won't be able to run around in my backyard because I have dogs that are very curious about them. Also I live in a city so I would be worried they would wonder off and get hit, lost, or bother my neighbors. So the only place they would have is the shed. Thats why I want to have plenty of room for them in it. Ill make sure they have plenty of air ventilation and light. Or if anyone has any suggests about what I should and shouldnt do, go ahead and post if. I appreciate any help. If you want to hear the whole story about why they are living with me now and why Im not prepared to take care of them you can go ahead and ask me Id be happy to explain why I'm in this situation. A few miscellaneous questions. Does anyone know how many eggs Cayugas lay per year and what age do they start laying? In the future when I live on a farm would it be a bad idea to let an egg of theirs hatch? They are siblings. I know obviously people can't do that but I don't know much about ducks genetics. When I got them I was told they were both hens but as the one grew up I've realized that "she" is a "he." Also if anyone has any tips for me about Cayugas and/or Cayuga/Indian Runner mix (I'm not sure how many of those are out there ) from personal experience don't hesitate to share.
