im a 35 yr old married mother of 6 awesome kids,and an uncontrollable animal love, my hubby brought me home 3 baby ducks,then we got 3 more, im fairly new to ducks and can use all the info i can get. we are keeping them as pets and hoping they will eventually breed. we made them a pen with a pond,hoping its enough space for them. the fence surrounding them is only 3 foot high so i fig if they weren't happy they'd jump or fly over. so far they seem to be healthy and happy. 5 of the ducks will run to me and eat out of my hand but one does not. im am working on trying to change that with treats. hopefully it works.
