My first ducklings

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My husband and I are parents of 6 children between ages of 6 and 12. Our children have been home school for 2 years now so we trying to make our home more of a natural learning area. We have 3 German shepherds in our back yard and a very playful 6 month old kitten in our home. Today we purchased two precious ducklings which we are going to raise into house ducks. I have done lots of research on how to raise my ducks in my home. I am hoping this is another place for good information. Thank you in advance for your patience with me and my possible dumb questions smile.png

Hi and :welcome - great to have you onboard. I'm sure your children must be thrilled with your new arrivals!

There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run. I'm not really familiar with ducks. But congratulations!

Please supervise the dogs and playful kitty  - interactions with  ducklings or chicks  usually end up with  dead birds.

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
