We just started with ducks last April after listening to our four year old beg for two years. When it got to the point that he was carrying around a stuffed duck, feeding it, tucking it in at night, we knew he was serious. We started with four ducks, 2 round and 2 pekin, that we purchased at TSC. We lost one to a raccoon before putting netting over the kennel. We lost another this weekend to a hawk. Now we have a male Rouen and a male Pekin. Hopefully getting some Cayugas in the spring. Below is the photo of a killer. He flew right in the open door while the ducks were out free ranging.
