Giving Your Duck a Proper Habitat
Having a duck for a pet isn’t for everyone, as they are not exclusively indoor pets and require an outdoor habitat. While you could theoretically use a garage or large indoor room, the best solution is a fenced area outside, or better yet, a farm.
Most important is the size of the compound. You should provide your pet duck with two to three square feet of room to walk around, including an additional square foot for the nesting area (where the female can build a nest and lay eggs.)
If you are located in a warm climate, your compound must provide adequate ventilation for the ducks. Similarly, if you are situated in a cold climate, the compound should be insulated and have a roof in case of rain or snow.
The inside of your duck habitat is also important. The ground of the habitat should be layered with straw, wood shaving, or newspaper which will act as a litter for your ducks. This base should be changed fairly often.
