I know alot of you will probably think this is a dumb question. But, here it goes. What are dry land ducks? I was at my sons school yesterday and was talking with an aide who also had chickens. I was interested in buying some hatching eggs from her. So, we were talking about all our other animals and she metioned she had two "dry land ducks" she was interested in giving away. I know dry land ducks don't require a pond or alot of water. That is the limit of my knowledge. I don't know what breed they are or anything. They are two males. Will they get along together? Is that why she's interested in giving them away? What in the world do they eat? Do they need different feed than chickens? What sort of housing do they need? I know they don't roost. So would a large dog house in an inclosed run be o.k.? I am seriously considering accepting them but want to be responcilble and give them all the things they need to be healthy. And of course to spoil them too. I make babies out of all of my animals. Thanks in advance for any answers. I knew if I wanted strait answers this was the place to go.
