Well maybe not advice, but I would like some of my questions answered. BTW I would be getting Call ducks and possibly wood/mandarin ducks ;-) Q1- We bought our farm years ago and on it, it had three coops prebuilt. These were two of them. (looking at the red one now) Its a pretty decent coop, the inside is completely empty, and it has terribly thin walls. one small window in the back, other than that closed in. its about 6 feet tall from top to bottom, and 4 feet wide, 5 feet long. If i were to add another window to this red coop, maybe add insulation, paint it, and fix it up with a nesting box or two, would it be an okay coop? which brings us to Q2: I would be free ranging my ducks next to my house. we are having a pond built in so i wouldnt have to worry about them travelling far for water. I have heard that they like to fly, so i would clip their wings. how far will a duck travel? Q3- are ducks cold hardy? would i need to insulate a coop for them? Q4- what do ducks lay in? nesting boxes, baskets, the ground, what? Q5- do ducks roost? Q6- are bantam duck eggs the size of a normal chicken egg? Q5- they will be somewhat close to my chickens, we have a few that would go as far as the ducks would be. can they mix during the day? Q6- whats the average flock number? how many hens per drakes? Q7- how far do ducks travel? Q8- what do ducks eat?
