We finished the ducks’ pen and house. They love it! They are not so excited to go inside their house at night, but we’ve found some ways to corral them into it. Here are some pictures of them in their new digs:
Our ducks are HUGE. Larger than I expected them to get. My uncle saw them and called them our cow-ducks, since they are so large. They are a lot of fun to watch, now that they are in their permanent spot in the yard.
Just wondering what you all do with ducks? Eat them? Eat their eggs? Just curious. I’d love to get a couple some time but I’m not sure they would be a wise choice on our small plot of land! 🙂 but I don’t want to eat them. I’ve never eaten duck eggs but would definitely try it!

We got them without having any kind of plan for them – we just thought they were cute. These are pekins, so they are supposed to be good layers and good meat ducks. They are getting really large and starting to eat more food than we thought – we are thinking we may take some out soon for eating (they are supposed to be good for eating). The eggs should be good though, I have heard. They don’t start laying for several more months though. We will definitely be keeping at least half of them, including at least one male. We have 12. If you are thinking of ducks, they are extremely messy (we have found out). We only have 1.5 acres. They have a 20×20 pen, and seem happy in there. But they are messy, and use a whole lot of water. Other kinds of ducks may not be like that, but Pekins are. There are a lot of types you could get if you wanted some. 🙂
