Duckling advise?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Im thinking of getting a duckling, to be a house pet.  I was thinking about a chicken (which is still an option) but i want advise and opinions. Are ducks or chickens better house pets? which are friendlier?--- edit: Ive decided on a chicken, for sure!

My opinion would be chicken since ducks are messier, but idunno.gif

I really am loving the chickens, too. holding them and petting them is just lovely, but they are all so cute. are ducks tons messier? i wont be dissapointed either way, i just, hadent thought "duck" and then i saw ducks and ive been reading on them and now i dont know lol

When I had ducks they hated being away from water and were very messy...

You may want to consider a goose also. I had one when I was in high school and she came in and out to go poddy. It was an African goose which make great guard dogs also.
