    I often wondered why people raise ducks, besides their being cute as all get-out!
    Just reading the above two posts is starting to show me why ducks make great pets!

    23. They eat slugs!

    Living in the Pacific Northwest we have more than plenty of those slimy things. Can't wait until I get ducks and they get big enough to free-range the back yard.
