There's ducks in my Backyard Answered

So a while back, a duck found the top of a shed a good place for nesting in my backyard. Me and my step dad talked about it and we're thinking of raising the ducklings once they hatch.
We're building a pond and whatever else comes to mind that duckings would need.

Has anything like this happened to any of you before?
I fell dumb for asking , but is this a good idea to raise ducks from the wild as pets? (I've never heard of a story in the news where a duck has harmed a person before so...)
Has anyone raised a duck before?
What are your thoughts on this?

haha, if we really do this, I could probably post an instructable on how to raise ducks if this goes well.

Here's some pictures of the duck that's on the shed.

my friend once raised two ducks. But in the end the two ducks died. I think wild ducks are not suitable animals to be raised. They are better off living in the wild because the animals raised are usually not long-lived.

I don’t recommend it. Canada geese are very protective of their goslings.
