Be careful, hun...you might wanna put the kibosh on posting your phone number in a public forum. ;) BYC is a pretty trustworthy community, but it's also the most googled for chicken and duck issues, so you never know who may be out there!

 

Also, I know you don't need a permit to just own a migratory wild-type duck, but you do need one to sell or trade them. So that's food for thought. :/

Look at you, all awesome and prepared! <3 I'm kinda jealous, I adore wood ducks. They're so cute and chirpy! But there's no way I'd pass to get a permit. I don't have a backyard and all I got is my house duck. :p

I raise wood ducks and have for years. I'm in Lafayette.

I have read many articles, but I am looking for personal experiences. 
my buddy has a pair of wood ducks mallards are more social but the Woody's do not give him a problem at all.
