    What can you tell me about this breed of ducks, and keeping ducks in general ?
    Do you need lots of water for ducks to be happy ... like ponds, lakes, or will a livestock
    tank of water be enough for them ? If you don't have a large body of water available to them will they seek one out ? Do ducks tend to stay around their home digs, or do they tend to wander off ?

    Typically, they'll stay around your home if they have everything they need. Most can't fly well at all.

    As for Welsh harlequin needs, they're just the same as any other duck.

    you don't need a pond or large lake for your ducks to be happy-one or two kiddie pools washed out daily or every other day at most will be perfectly fine for them! :)
