Hi all. I have 5 healthy, seemingly happy 1 week-old buff ducklings. I want to range them 24/7 on a pond here but wonder about housing and introduction. Housing first I suppose. I'm in Texas and everything I read says they're pretty hardy so I'm not worried about winters and I guess they sleep on the water so I'm not too worried about predators. Anyone recommend building a small coup/large bird-house thing next to the water? And to those of you who've done it, when (how old) and how did you introduce them to the 'wild' from a brooder? Just toss them in the pond one day and come back now and again to watch and give feed or treats?
