I got seven ducklings last summer. They were bought as future bug control. They have done really well and are quite hardy. When I go out in the morning to milk I often find them snuggled up outside. (The silly chickens are all hiding in the barn.) They are fabulous fliers and tend to fly all over rather than walk. They are a rather large duck. I am surprised at how well they fly. They often are found on top of the chicken barn pretending to be weather veins. They have stayed here on the farm and seem to be good at warding off predators. I hope that they are as good at attacking the pesky squash bug this summer.
