I have been raising chickens for a few years now but am interested in getting some ducklings next spring. We have 4 acres and a pond, so there's no issue with crowding. I have some particular characteristics I'm looking for and am interested to hear people's thoughts. First and foremost, we have wild ducks and geese (only about 5 or 6 of each) that fly in from time to time so I want to get ducks that won't fly off with them (but am really not a fan of runner ducks). I'm also wondering if the wild birds pose any sort of threat to domestic ones (diseases, physical harm). Secondly, I really like the small breeds but have heard that Call ducks are noisy. Will they really be noisier than my flock of 18 hens and a rooster? If so, what other breeds would you recommend. I'd really prefer colorful plumage over pure white (not sure why...) Thanks, in advance, for your help!
