    So I have finally had it with living in New England and am planning on moving to a snow-free state (preferrably one that doesn't hit 90+ in the summer!). I figured since there are so many duck-people from so many places on here, I could get some good info to help in the decision making process. I'm hoping to get some info and personal opinions from all you non-New Englanders regarding the best states/towns to live with ducks. I have 4 now but am planning on expanding to maybe 10-15.

    Suggestions of places to avoid would also be welcomed!

    I live in florida very warm and snow free city that city is jacksonville florida thats were i live and you could live on a nice lake with cool ducks that fly down from the cold states in the winter. and is a great place to raise ducks!!! if u want a good neighborhood live in ''Osprey Point'' it would be nice for another duck person to live in the same neighborhood but anywere is good in florida! especially jacksonville! tell were youll go!

    You might look into Oregon. When the local university team are known as the Ducks it says a little about the climate......

    Northern Ohio isn't much better than yours. It has been really cold here. [​IMG]

    I've never even considered Oregon before. I guess I'll have to give it a look! Florida, Cali, and NC have been the front-runners with Arizona, SC and Texas trailing close behind. Bummed to hear that SC is really humid - major drawback (for me - not sure how the ducks feel about it [​IMG])

    Honestly, Cali seems to have all the pro's with the only con being those pesky little earthquakes [​IMG]

    [​IMG] The occasional quakes aren't that bad...and the good thing (in your opinion LOL) is that it never gets below like 45° in the winter.
