This forum really does have everything!
I've seen a couple of posts about ducks and was after some advice from those in the know.
I've just moved house to a place with a good size garden. I has a lawned area about twelve metres by five and more smaller bits including a veg patch.
I've never kept any poultry before, I've always fancied chickens but I'm concerned that they are quite destructive and would tear my garden to shreds. Also, I find ducks highly amusing
The main reasons for wanting some are eggs and the fact I'd love to have some running around the place.
I don't have any suitable water for them but I read that some breeds don't necessarily need a pond. I could provide a bath tub or something. Is this right? I don't want to deprive them!
We don't have any foxes or natural predators over here so hopefully that makes things easier.
Does this sound like a good home for ducks? I'm thinking of three, there's only two of us so we don't need loads of eggs.
Any thoughts or advice is much appreciated!
