I live in a neighborhood where chickens are illegal, but ducks are allowed. The problem is that it's just my mom and I, and she works from 7-5 most days, and while I get home from school at 2:30 some days, other days (once or twice a week for music performances), I get home well past nine, and the ducks would have to stay in an 8x10ish pen in the (well lit) garage with a small pool (they can't stay outside because we have serious wildlife problems in my neighborhood). The issue is that I could only take them outside to the grass maybe 5 days a week for two or so hours a day. I am kind of concerned that the ducks wouldn't be able to take this, but I've only ever had chickens. Does anyone have an input?
