I love ducks but don't have any idea on what is required to house them and keep them safe. Can they free-range with my chickens? Do I need a pond or will a kids wading pool be okay? Will they fly away? Could they be locked up with my chickens at night? When I was a girl, we used to go to the lake in our city and take any hurt or sick ducks home to nurse back to health and brought them back when they were healed and healthy.
