Hi all. I am a newbie to ducks and this forum. I recently purchased a new home on 10 acres with a little pond, fed from runoff and my water source heat pump. My wife and I thought it would be a good Idea to have some ducks for our boys and us to watch. A doctor who my wife works with brought us over 3 domestic mallards. I have 2 drakes and 1 hen. I built a floating duck coop and cannot seem to get the ducks to go in. We live in Nebraska so it has been getting cold. How do I get the ducks in the coop? Also what should I expect with ducks? How much do they eat and what do they eat? What should I do with the eggs I have been finding all over the place? We have had 4 other ducks land and join our three. I am trying to up load a picture of my floating coop.
