Hello there and welcome to BYC! :frow

I don't know a thing about ducks either, definitely follow the link to our ducks section that CTKen has left for you.

Good luck with your ducks and welcome to our roost! :)

I've never raised ducks (just chickens) but hope the good folks over on the duck forum can help you out.

Thanks for joining us!

That's a good question for folks on the duck thread. I have heard that domesticated ducks - meeting wild ones on a pond, may fly off and follow them.

Also if the avian flu is still circulating, it is generally spread from wild birds to domestic ones. Your's might be safer if you have your own kiddy pool or something to swim in away from the canal
