    Mary-they are so awesome-I love your confused boy!!! has he gotten over his turkey love yet??

    I wish you were offering these 2 weeks ago..Are these as easy to take care of as regular ducks or is there special treatment??

    They aren't a breed that'll follow you around....more skittish....a wild duck....but so beautiful none the less...

    Yep...he got over his love confusion....(?) and how his mate is laying eggs.

    OH yeah, you'd need to build a pen....well...unless you'd rather them fly around because don't you have water on the property somewhere?

    This site has instructions for building the nest boxes that you mount on trees, that is what my MIL is planning to do.
