Keeping and Caring For Ducks as Pets - Pet Assure
With the Easter holiday approaching, baby ducklings often find their way into gift baskets, but with some forethought, knowledge, and planning these little darlings can become treasured members of the family. Here is some useful information for those who might be considering a duck as a pet. Ducks are wonderfully hardy, inexpensive, and easy to care for. They can live up to 20 years and make gentle and amusing pets. However, before choosing a duck as a pet, there are several important points to remember: If you are considering a duck as a household (indoor exotic) pet, please do your homework and ensure it is the right choice for you. Ducks can live a long time and deserve a happy, healthy home for the duration. As with all pets, remember to contact your veterinarian when you have questions and to schedule checkups on a regular basis to keep your pet healthy and happy.1. Please DO NOT keep a duck as a “house” pet. They are NOT suited to an indoor lifestyle. Although it may make you happy to keep your duck indoors, understand that you are being cruel to the duck, as they need to live outdoors. Ducks are meant for the great outdoors. It might be comforting to think of keeping the duck inside the house, but they are an outdoor pet by nature. This does not apply to ducklings that have to be kept inside the home for the first four to five weeks of their life. This does not also mean setting the ducks loose in a backyard; they are an easy prey for bigger predators. Have them in a nice fencing or enclosure where they have the option to shield themselves away from the weather conditions. Owners learning as pets also have the option to give their duck friends a little house, preferably facing away from the prevailing winds. The house should always be refreshed with clean straw for beddings. It also optional to place them near a little body of water so they have the option to swim. They can survive without swimming, but this can make them unhappy.
