Hello all! I have recently decided to begin a small flock of exotic ducks. I have done research, and my favorite breeds include Mandarin, Merganser, American wood, Ring Teal, or Cayuga. I do have experience raising ducks- I have had 4 ducks in the past- two pekins, a mallard, and a French Rouen. I have a large coop/aviary that I used for my old flock of chickens, duck, and quail. It is about 14-18 feet long, 5-6 feet wide, and 5-6 feet high. It's has a covered area of about 6x5x6 surrounded by brick, with a cement floor, and a large swinging Wooden gate. Inside the covered area we put hay or leaf bedding, a nesting box, a smaller wire coop, feeders, and waterers. In the uncovered part of the enclosure is a tree, bushes, and a small duck pond. I want to have a close bond with these ducks like I had with my last flock, and I want to breed them. If anyone has ducks or ducklings of these breeds, please reply or contact me! Thank you! Facts or tips on the breeds and which one to choose is also appreciated!
