We have been raising chickens for about a year and love them. We are moving to a lake house soon, so we were wondering if we should get ducks. We would probably get one. I would like to know the pros and cons of ducks. I heard they are messy, but any other cons? We would have neighbors close by, so if they get too messy and attract flies that would be a major problem. The lake we would let the duck onto is extremely large. Also, can a duck live with the chickens? Or would the duck beat up the chickens? I really want ducks, but I feel like I need to go over the pros and cons. Thanks!
