My husband and I were wanting to get some ducklings in the spring. However, in a small pond which was created by alot of rain by my workplace, a small flock of mallards have moved in. At least I think that is what they are. Is there any reason I should not try to catch wild birds? Can they be tamed? Would they carry disease that could spread to my chickens? My boss would like them off the property and since I wanted ducks I thought perhaps they could just be "moved" here and I could tame their ducklings, eat them later. Or let them fly away and try to keep the babies. Is this a real dumb idea?
