LOL. Yes, waterfowl are very messy. They will turn any patch of yard into a nice mud hole within days! Commercial duck production (meat ducks) raise their birds on concrete and only provide water for drinking. Market weight is achieved in approximately 10 weeks ish. Don't quote me on that, it is somewhere around there...farmhand said:What are the requirements for raising ducks? Space, food, housing
I've just heard there messy.
My 7 ducks are just fine with my 14 chickens. I have 2 kiddie pools for them .So would they be happy with a small flock of say 3 birds? Wouldn't be too hard to plumb up a small kiddy pool that drained out for easy cleaning. My dad used to tell me stories about giving a chicken duck eggs to hatch and getting all bent out of shape when her little ducks jumped into the water.
