    They look so sweet out there in the green! Will they eventually be living outside? All is good here!

    Yes eventually I would love for them to be outside permanently. I just had a 10x8 coop built which is in place, just waiting for the run to be built. I'm not sure if I want to move them in there with my big girls (chickens) or if it's safer to give them their own house and run?

    I only have a total of 8 ducks for now. I have Rouen lady and drake, 3 Indian Runner ladies and 3 pekin ladies. They all bring a smile to my face. I love them so much :love

    With moon being mostly blind I really don’t think it would be a good idea to put them in with the chickens. Chickens can spot right off if one isn’t quite right and they can be awful mean. Better to be safe than sorry.

    I have to agree after not wanting any and getting these two I have absolutely fell in love with them. Definitely won't be any more in the future though lol. You have chickens too?

    Yes that was my thinking too as she can't get around good enough to get away either.
