I'm A Beginner At Raising Ducks.

My ducks will arive by airmail around May 10th. I am starting with ten until I have more hands on experience. I have studied hard and even visited two duck farmers. After much research I decided to buy Rouens. They are non-flyers and huge meat ducks. Although I do not know if I'll ever have the heart to kill them for food. I do plan on saleing them to those who wish to. But in my heart I will see them as pets. I inherited an old farm from my grandparents and it hasn't been farmed since the 70's. So I'm hoping this will be my first step to restoring the place with farm animals. I'm very excited and have worked hard to prepare. They have thier own small barn and a 30 X 20 covered pen. Plus I have the brooder ready too. Any advice is welcome.
