Any advice on getting some ducks. I live in Central Oregon - we have fairly cold winters with moderate amounts of snow. I only kept the chickens in for about 8 days this past winter. I read somewhere that ducks don't like to go inside - so that worried me. Also I have no pond. I have 5 pastured acres that I flood irrigate. I could have a pond dug. What about keep ducks safe - should they be kept in a pen? What about the drakes - do you only want one or two like roosters or can they all hang out and get along? Any advice or suggestions would be great. I was just online at the library and ordered 11 books on the subject to get me going but personal experiences tend to be more meaningful. I really want ducks for eggs - what would be a good breed? I can incubate and hatch them myself. My first hatch of chickens are due out in 10 days. Yeah!!!
