Show off your house ducks! - Page 508
Oh, I hope so...it's going to be tough to find a place to live that will allow them. Everything is up in the air and I just don't know what's going to happen, if this is the best thing for me to do or if I'm making a huge mistake. I just don't know. I don't like not knowing, it's scary.
Wobbles let me snuggle with him for so long today, I just hugged him to my chest and he fell asleep with his bill tucked into my hair. Even Bean let me hold her for a little bit. I never thought I'd have a duck for a house pet, and it's been a strange experience for sure. But they're just so full of love, and with all that's happened to me this past year my feather puppies truly are the only joy I have left in my life. And now that I have to give them up, it's tearing me apart inside. I don't know if moving back home is worth the cost of losing my babies.
i wish you could settle in somewhere where you could have the duckies. And being in your situation would be scary. Just know i do think about you and hope for the best, Amy.
That is the cutest thing that Wobbles let you snuggle with him. He is such a cute and round little butter loaf. Then his face. Yikes. The eyes and cheeks. As for having a duck as a house pet it was something i'd never heard of until I joined byc. But I think it's totally normal. I would think that you would be able to find a place where you could have them since some places do allow other types of small pets. I mean, you have to ensure they don't make messes and you do perfectly fine with Bean and Wobbles and their diapers.
Hold on, you're not making any sense - "milk replacer"? Ducks need starter crumble, not milk. And not adult layer feed, either. Baby ducks also shouldn't be given things that are hard to digest like fish, insects and grain, since they're too tiny and don't have any grit in their crops yet.
What's happening, anyway? How many babies are there and what's their condition like? You mentioned mama duck not "having what it takes", what does that mean? Are the babies in trouble? Are they suffering?
