    I'm getting mandarin ducks next week I keep pheasant peacocks chickens ducks ect but is there anything special that mandarin ducks need.

    Also i was wondering can they be kept with chickens or do they take disease and die like most game birds many thanks Oisin

    i too was thinking of getting a pair. from what I've read they like to go in trees like a wood duck. plus you probably need a lager water source for them to swim in. my 2 cents.
