I need the load down on duck ownership. It seems to be more difficult to find info on their care than chickens so I would like to ask people who have ducks. I have a decent sized pond in full view of the house they can play in. What feed is recommended for them? I don't recall seeing "duck food" at my local feed store. What is their housing requirements? I came across a few bonded 1yr old mix breed drakes who don't look to be in that great of a situation and thought I can offer them something better. But, I don't want to jump into something I know nothing about. So give me ducks 101, and I can see if duckies are right for me!
