Yeah... me too. We never planned to get a duck, but my father in law picked 2 when he went to get the chickens. We took one cause Noah thought it was cute. We went from just having a few chickens to having a pair of ducks (when ours turned out to be a boy)... and now they have their own yard and coop. Thankfully things are all working out now and the drake not chasing the chicken hens anymore. It was a bit of effort, expense and lots of learning to take care of them. Once I accepted him from my father in law I was responsible for him and did what I needed to do to provide for him and his needs.
Quick question.... those of you that have/have had BO's... when did they start laying? Mine is just over 30 weeks if they were actually 8 weeks when we got them... her comb is just starting to get points on it... no signs of wanting to lay yet
