Serious question – why would you raise them instead of letting them show up naturally? Is there an appeal to having ducks? It seems like ducks could be kind of a nuisance at a golf course (trying to avoid injuring them, cleaning up poop when they inevitably wander over to the clubhouse). I don’t know exactly why the golf course had ducks but I can tell you that ducks are very easy-going animals for caring and keeping on your property. If you were going to keep “land birds” in your backyard, a popular choice is a chicken (and they’re great too, they can even be affectionate) but ducks are superior because ducks barely even quack. You could keep a flock of ducks both males and females and all you’d hear is a We’re Just Two Lost Souls Swimming In A Fish Bowl Vintage Shirtfew quacks from the females a day, but usually.

Ducks also create less havoc on your garden and bushes. They’ll still nibble a bit on flowers and bushes but not enough to notice any difference — they don’t scratch out plant roots, they don’t make dust baths the soil, and they like to eat grub and insects (which is good for pest control and maybe the reason for their presence on golf clubs). The only downside with ducks in your backyard is that they drill holes (less than the size of a quarter) for larvae, but it won’t really be noticeable unless you look for it. Most ducks you can get for your backyard won’t fly unless you get Mallards. All you would need is a 2-foot wire fence to keep them out of trouble and going into your neighbors — while chicken needs at least 4 feet of fencing height but they can still clear it if they’re determined or anxious. Ducks aren’t really inclined to escape if their homeland is suitable with vegetation and at the We’re Just Two Lost Souls Swimming In A Fish Bowl Vintage Shirt very least, a decent kiddie pool for them to paddle in.

In regards to duck health and wellbeing, it could be overwhelming to find the right avian vet for providing specialized care. However, ducks are healthier with stronger immune systems than chickens. A duck’s internal temperature is around 107F, making them inhospitable to most parasites and bacteria. Ducks are not susceptible to coccidiosis, Marek’s disease, or other illnesses common to chickens. With avian flu, ducks generally don’t get sick from it, they’re just carriers. Because ducks spend a We’re Just Two Lost Souls Swimming In A Fish Bowl Vintage Shirt good amount of their time in the water, they also have fewer mites, lice, and other external parasites than chickens. With housing for the night, they won’t need a roosting house or nesting boxes — just an old storage bin could work if you cut out the hole on the side for them to go in on their own. Or a dog house. They sleep quite well in straw.
