i havent gotten any ducks yet, but here are a few questions! are ducks like chickens and range during the day and come back to the coop at night to roost? can you keep them in a coop and run situation with guineas or chickens? right now i only let my older chickens out for a couple hours a day, once my whole flock catches up in age id like to let them out for most of the days, we'll see. would that be ok if i continued that? we have a pond down back, is that where they will spend most of thier time? are they loud? louder than guinea hens? are they messy? people have told me ducks poop everywhere worse than chickens. i only plan to have 3. i have young guinea keets and chicks i am raising together, once old enough id like to see them all range together rather than go off in seperate groups. i know this is just what im hoping not what will definetly happen, but will ducks stick with the flock or go off to seek the water rather than range around the yard? what breed of duck would i be best off getting? i do not plan to eat them. just looking for some colorful cute ducks to have around. friendly and that will stick around. any other advice you want to share would be appreciated too! thanks!
