I have owned several ducks, both female and male.
Adds some colour and diversity to yard.
The good: Fairly intelligent animal, loves water and swamp like environment, adjusts to surroundings well.
Great for getting rid of bugs and insects.
Adjusts to feeding times and predictable behaviour, actions.
Friendly towards chickens and other animals.
Neutral: Lower egg production than expected.
The bad: Quite corrosive faeces, occasionally aggressive towards new ducks or animals.
