Yea, I have been researching that they need a big deep pond. Do you know where I can find out if a need a permit in my state. I live in OklahomaFirst they are divers so they need plenty of water and might be more difficult feed and to breed successfully. I don't have any divers because of keeping a pond open and clean in my yard for the winter.
Second you need federal permits and in some states state permits so sell any of their offspring and eggs that includes giving them away. I have state and federal permits for my ducks I sell Green wing teal and this year I'll have Cinnamon teal but only hatched one Wood duck.
