As with the chicken one, everything is fairly similar. The only addition of a better (Waterfowl feed) and

Ducklings $3-$10 Depending on Breed
Ducks $10-$20 Depending on Breed and Age
Coop $100-$1000 Depending on what size
Pool (optional) $10-$500 Kiddy pool/Stock tanks or installed
Food & Water bowls $50-$100
Feed $20-$40  Organic feed can be $30+
Pine Shavings/Straw $5-$10
Totals $198 – $1,680

Now obviously there is a huge range. Someone might only be getting 2 ducks and a small coop (Still set you back about $600) and free range, or have a large run. A $100 coop isn’t going to get you very far. From looking at Ebay and Amazon you will only be able to fit 2 ducks in a $100 coop. However if you are handy. $100 will get you some wood towards making your own larger coop!
