Hi everyone. I am new to duck raising. Basically to the point where I picked up 2 ducklings without knowing the breed. I do have a heat lamp, non-medicated feed, and water dispenser. I have a few questions. First, can someone help identify the breed. The gentleman at Tractor Supply did say they were not mallards. I was too excited to ask more about the breed though. Also, I do plan on making a pen for them in the backyard one they get big enough. How big should the pen be ideally? Thank you in advance.

Thanks for the link. I started browsing through it and looks very helpful. I looked through Welsh Harlequin duckling pictures and they do look quite a bit like them

As far as coop size, 4-6 square foot of ground in the coop per duck at least. Outside give them plenty of room to run around and a pool!:) they love to run and swim :)
