Good evening, I am pondering getting some ducks but have a few questions. Forgive me if they seem dumb but I am new to ducks. I really like the Wood and Mandarin duck and wonder which one if any would work for what I want to do. Let me say I live in The Bahamas and our climate here is comparable to South Florida. What I would like to do is to get a pair of one of these breeds and breed them. I live on a small island (2 1/2 miles long 1/2 mile wide) on the water. What I would like to know is if I let some of them free range every year and keep a few pair for breeding, will they stay on/around this island or will they fly away never to return? Can they survive on their on after being raised in captivity? If these breeds are not a good choice, please give me some other choices of beautiful/colorful ducks that will stick around and free range close to our home/island. And before I start a "you need a permit" "you can not let them into free world" debate I already am in the process of that with the proper Bahamian officials.
