    They live in marine ecosystems though

    Icravepoultry


    thanks for replying , i googled it and they look just like you said
    which one? or both?
    was planning to make a coop with an old bath tub i have as a pool for them
    problem i bought them from someones farm and i saw couple just like them dead there so after i got home i thought maybe the ones dead are males or females of each couple, need to confirm before i build the coop or figure if i need to look for each ones mate

    The dead ones probably couldn't live in freshwater like the shellducks
