We just got chickens a couple of weeks ago, and my mom (who we share the property with) wants ducks! Our property is four acres, very long and skinny and ends in a pond. We have dogs so I have a fence before the pond so the dogs don't swim to visit the neighbors. I'd like the ducks to be able to use the pond, but it's on the far end of the property.. Should I build them a little coop at the far end of the property, on the other side of the fence and simply walk down to the pond to shut them in at night? I'm planning on getting them as ducklings as I'd like them to be tame/friendly.. I was thinking 2-4? I know they will need heat for a while, could I use an old aquarium with some shavings in the bottom and have a heat lamp on it for them? (It is a 20gallon, long, we had turtles in it at one time). I could bring them out during the day to roam around while supervised, just need a place to keep them at night and when I'm not around to watch them until they're larger. Are duck and chicken coops about the same? Do they need roosts and nest boxes? Thanks in advance!!
