New Duck Parents

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello. My husband and I rescued two baby ducklings yesterday. We have named the new additions to our family Waddles and Wade. This site has taught us so much. We are open to learning as much as possible to give these little ones the best quality of life. It's been 24 hours and so far they are doing great! I work with dogs for a living so ducks are very new to me. I'm sure we will have many questions and we are open to learning all we can!

Welcome to BYC. I got my first ducks last summer. We love them---but they do make a mess with the water. Nice mud puddles for everyone.

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join us here! That's so nice if you to take these ducklings in big_smile.png I'm not a duck person but i see you have posted in the duck section. I'm sure the keepers there will be able to help you with all your questions. The learning centre has a great section on ducks that you might like to check out, here is the link ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/other-backyard-poultry-ducks-quail-turkeys-geese-etc

Wishing you the very best of luck with Waddles and Wade. Enjoy BYC frow.gif

Hi and welcome to BYC - glad to have you join us. You certainly have been thrown in at the deep end somewhat, but good on ya for giving the ducklings a break. As Yorkshire coop says, there are lots of members that keep ducks, so feel free to go to that forum and ask away. 

 

Since you work with dogs, how long do you think it will take before your ducks are sitting on command? :)

 

All the best

Welcome to Backyard chickens   -  We get  many new members that start out by saying  their dog massacred their chicks.  So forgive me for  saying please supervise them around the chickens.

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
