Newbie Alert!

Hello, I'm Renae, a few hours ago, I recovers two young ducklings, Gummi and Tiny, Gummi is an olivey black 2 week and Tiny is a black 2 week, both of them, are Khaki Campbell cross Pekin ducks, their genders are unknown. They are both beautiful natured babies and I'm lucky to have them. They don't completely eat weetbix but they're getting their and they're super water shy babies! I need help training them, they're half imprinted, and they love to sleep - especially on me! I want these two to love people but I'm not getting far with that, also should I keep them in my room at adulthood? It's warm, and no predators except for spiders and mozzies can get in, our cat is a hunter and often can't get in, but I can train my ducks to eat her ūüėÜ how to train ducks?

Hmmm... Well I'm a farmer so I don't know much about trying to keep them indoors but I do know that there is such a thing as duck diapers which would probably be a good idea if you want them in the house!

There is a Sticky on Raising Ducklings that can help, and a thread for Indoor Ducks, too.

Oh my wow. It has been like one month since I posted this. Around 5 weeks ago, Gummi was eaten by our dog, or one of them, Tiny is now 3 months old and running everywhere. I'm not sure the name 'Tiny' fits the bill though. She's about 1.3 feet tall (neck outstretched) and has a faint green head. I'm not sure gender yet, she quacks loud and when she breaths sounds wheezy but all in all she chases me like she chased Gummi! Our budgie, Buddi has not yet met her but is like minus three quarters of her, he fits my hand.
