    I'd like to get a few ducks to keep around the "farm".

    What I'd like to know is how one goes about raising baby ducks? What type of brooder is needed, how long before they can go outside? That sort of thing. Do they need a coop or a different shelter? Will they eat all of my flowers?

    Like I said, I just want a few to have around the yard.

    Liveducks.com and feathersite.com's section on ducks both have some great info.

    Buy Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks by Dave Holderread. Fantastic information! And be warned, if you think chickens are addicting, just wait....[​IMG]
