Hi everyone, been reading the posts on this forum with great interest and was wondering if I could get some advice re. ducks.
Unfortunately a fox visited our chookpen, which was left open. Am thinking about getting some ducks to add to the two remaining chooks (lucky things were exiled as they were broody). We had some ducklings for a weekend (Science project for the school I work at) and I was amazed at the amount of mess these tiny animals produced.
My questions are; do ducks make a lot more mess, as in poo, compared to chooks?? And also, how can you tell the difference between male and female ducks?
Would be great if you guys could help me out,
