      Babies are nervous of the new open space in the dark now that it's bedtime. Even their nightlight isn't helping much :c

        Of course! That sounds like a good plan :) The job can be very difficult a lot of the time. I'm going back to school for conservation biology because I'm sure the clinic environment is not for me. However, working with animals is absolutely the best and most rewarding thing ever and I could never see myself not working with them now! I love my clients very much; it follows you home after work in a good way.

    Sharing my experience raising ducklings and enjoying the company of others who love ducks!
    Hello BYC!

    I am a huge fan of ducks and their goofy, noisy, messy antics.

    This is not my first time raising ducklings; I live on a spacious country property with my other half and family. I work as a veterinary assistant and have always had a love for animals of every kind. I've had the joy of researching ducks, caring for, and eventually teaching them how to care for their own flock over the last few years. There has been many ups and downs for the family as they learned, sometimes the hard way, how serious predators and nutrition is for a duck, but I am very glad that I have managed to do my job and they now have four beautiful adult girls (two cayuga and two rouen)!

    I have decided to get my own ducklings which will grow, live, and co-mingle with theirs for the time being. My three girls will be a buff, blue Swedish, and chocolate ancona. I still have plenty of things to learn about ducks and hope we can all grow to love my little flock together!

    The Ducklings:


    Moony: Ancona-straight run-currently 9 days old

    Puddles: Buff-female-currently 5 days old

    Holly: Blue Swedish-female- currently 5 days old
