    Hello I am new here but not new to ducks I have never had one inside before so it will be an adventure. I am looking for duck dipers or how to make them. I took my baby on an outing yesterday he really enjoyed it. Haha I keep saying he but I don't like to say "it" the baby is only a week old so I will soon get a surprise just like I did with my kids. This baby is very loved and an important part of the family. I have Silas 2 cats 4 kids and one out of this world husband. Please offer any suggestions or help I will gladly take them all!

    When you say house duck do you mean that you bring the duck indoors at night? Have you done your research, ducks are social creatures and keeping one indoors is not an easy task.

    A high rimed kids or pet pool can be used as housing or a dog crate. They are messy little things and Good ventilation is a must. Install a mirror so the duck can see it's self and beware of stairs!

    I don't think baby Silas will have any trouble with not having attention we all care for him and he is part of family just like one of my children. Yes I saw the dipers I am on that gonna get baby Silas all ready to follow momma around!

    As long as you know the work that comes with a house duck you should be good to go. They need a companion 24/7 and if you can provide that you should be good. I see someone already linked the house duck thread on here and they would know where to get diapers from and what you need.
