Have you checked the helpful links at the beginning of this thread? Sally has compiled a ton of great information and linked it for us. Good luckpost #76038 of 1576313/28/16 at 7:22pmQuote:
Why? Because they imprint on you. That means that they follow you everywhere! They will be anxious for snuggles!
As Chaos said, most people that are allergic to chicken eggs, are not allergic to duck eggs.
At eight weeks most ducks are big enough to butcher.
The eggs are better for baking.CoffeeCoffeepost #76039 of 1576313/28/16 at 7:22pm
When I was 7 or 8, I was living just outside Boston, my next door neighbor was a bank, the back lot behind the five & dime was behind my house. It was the CITY. I found a duck waddling down Main street. It's wings were clipped, so it just ran away from me. Eventually, I convinced it to come home with me. We named it Stubby. For about 3 months, we treated it like my new pet. It lived in the house, but spent the days outside with us kids. We went on vacation and the friends that were watching him for us, put him in a box, when he tried to jump out he broke his neck is what they told us. My dad was convinced they ate it. But a year or so later, my dad was digging in the back yard, and found him. So, for 3 months as a small child, we had A duck. I never did find out why a duck with it's wings clipped was wandering down Main St.Mom to a BEAUTIFUL little girl, 1 dog, 2 cats, LOTS of fish and an ever growing chicken flock.

Just to make sure it does not get walked on or mashed I have meat birds with two week younger tiny Ameraucana and they hang out. It is like Tom and Jerry.
