I've been a poultry owner for years and years, always chickens. But for the first time I've branched out to ducklings/ducks and I was surprised at how personable the ducklings are. I have a solitary baby and there is NO doubt that it considers me momma. It has been more fun than all of the chicks I've ever raised. I don't know how that will translate to adulthood, but I sure have had an eye opener with this baby. If considering ducks...I would no longer hesitate...they are wonderful!
