I have be doing TONS of research over the past few weeks and I am thinking that I would love to have some pet ducks in our back yard. I have heard that pekins are the most friendly breed however I am a bit concerned with them being loud. We live on 1 acre and our neighbors are not close at all. In fact I think the closest neighbor is across the road from us. Where I dont think that the neighbors would complain, I still want to make sure that my ducks would not disturb anyone. Please tell me about your ducks, and what breed you like best! I would love to hear your stories and see pictures! I am considering allowing them in the house with duck diapers on occasion, but they will mostly be back yard ducks. Yes I understand they are very messy! I used to own goats and horses when I was younger so cleaning pens is not a big deal for me. I am ready for the mess, I just want to know what breeds people have as pets that are really friendly like dogs. Also, I would like to hear about those of you that have eggs! I am thinking I want two females for now.. maybe adding more later. But as of now 2 or 3 is my limit!
