    Ok I have 13 chickens and feel very competent in that area, but when come to duck I'm lost. They seem so much more complicated to me. I live on 30 acres and the chickens free range all day. I have a man made drop in liner pond right by the house that's 700 gallons and about 1/4 mile from the house we own a 3 acre lake. I also have a creek 50 yards from the coop. Will the ducks make the trip to the big lake every day and put themselves to bed at night in the coop like the chickens? Can a broody hen raise ducklings?
