    Getting magpie ducks hoping they are a friendly bunch that won't fly away. Let me know if you have raised some.

    Magpie ducks get too big to fly, I think males get to like 7 pounds.

    I have a month old Magpie named Junna, she is quite friendly, unless like most ducks, you go to pick her up(ducks typically don't like bieng picked up), and is quite brave as well, she is my first magpie too.

    like all ducklings, they'll take time, and alot of handling.
