So I've been wanting ducks for a long time now and I was talking to bf the other night about how one time I processed and cooked them and that they were SO good... he said I want duck! I'm taking that to mean I want duckS... So we have an approx 12' x 12' coop where the chickens are, with an attached yard about 25' x 25'. We have a small kiddie pool in there for the chickens. I want to know if this would suitable for adding a small flock of ducks. I was thinking 1 drake and 3 hens. If this is a suitable place to keep them with the chickens then; 1. How do I keep the feed separate, or do they eat the same things? Could I keep one feeder in the coop for the chickens and one out by the pond for the ducks? 2. I know they are messy, will they get in the water dish inside the coop if they have the pond outside? They really will only be in the coop to sleep. 3. What kind of ducks should I get? I want a large breed dual purpose. I don't want them to fly away, but I wouldn't mind if they went over the fence or free-ranged. I don't want Pekins. I was thinking Silver Appleyards (but they are hard to find) or Rouen's? TIA!
