We are about to acquire two ducklings next week. Long short story was in our feed supply and they had some we asked and the end result is two will be set aside for us with the order next week. My mother adores Mallards and i figured we are already up to our knees in Muscovy so a pair of mallards won't do much harm, besides my husband had one as a child. So the breed holds memories and fondness. They are not going with the 'scovies i have drakes and they are big, obviously.. they will be penned instead, i know they are better fliers than my current ducks but what else should i know? They will have a pond as i know they are massive water lovers to be honest so are my 'scovies, i have been looking at the waterfowl pen set-ups and so forth... Anyone care to share their experiences with the breed, tips? Thanks!
