    That's exactly what I did, but I used a milk jug and made sure there weren't sharp edges, we used it for chickens too. [​IMG]

    The Gray Mallards from Ideal...will they fly? We have a few ponds on our farm and was planning on getting some ducks so they can go from pond to pond. Does anyone have any experience with gray mallards?

    All mallars fly (unless pinnioned) but if they are domesticated enough they will stay if there is peace and no threats of other animals includeing people. for instance my black mallards stay but my greys love to fly , one flew off once, but came back very quickly , so now i clip all of my grey mallards wings.

    But to be on the safe side i would clip their wings.
