    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

    Wood ducks are a protected wild migratory bird, and other than for rehabilitation (for which you need a special license) I do not believe you are allowed to keep them. There is, however,a domesticated duck that looks a lot like them. The duck people can set you right on that.

    [​IMG]. Yes you can keep Wood Ducks but you will need a license to keep them. You'll get more information on it in the "Ornamental Fowl" section. There's several people there who keep migratory species.
