I've even interested in ducks for some time, specifically Pekins. I may order some from an online hatchery (2-3 ducklings.) I plan on keeping them in a dog kennel and supplying them with other necessities but I can't devote all of my time to them. There is a public pond right across my street where a pair of mallards used to live but at the moment it's empty of waterfowl. Can I keep the ducks (when full grown) in the pond for 6-10 hours a day but continue to provide them with food shelter and clean water? Golfers/gardeners near the pond seem to scare away most potential predators, but I'd like some input from experienced owners of ducks.
