I have had my chickens for almost a year and have really enjoyed them. I stopped by Tractor Supply because I was thinking of picking up a couple more, but I happened to see ducks there. I have thought off and on about getting two or three just to see how they suited us, and I have done a little research on them, but I don’t see much in the way of how they are around children. I don’t have a rooster because I have a six-year-old. I don’t want to chance it. I know drakes don’t have spurs, but if I end up getting a few should I just leave the male out of the equation? Are female ducks ever aggressive? My six-year-old does not try to pick up our chickens but she will occasionally pet them.
