    Actually, I don't find it funny at all. I find it alarming.

    It would take no more than 5 minutes on-line to get the basics of raising a duck. If people can't spend 5 minutes doing basic research before they purchase a pet, it doesn't bode well for the life and health of the animal that they purchase.

    I did talk to friends about ducks....and I THOUGHT I was prepared for the mess....ummm....lol...nope! But....I do not "kick" them out for being messy.I wait the amount of time needed depending on each little "flock" I brood....then put them out.It does seem that with poultry,people (myself included) tend to get too many too fast! Wonder why that is? But I personally wouldn't change my experiences for anything! Although I would recommend others be more prepared ahead of time and I try to educate anyone buying from me.Not everyone can be as impulsive as some of us are!
    With that said, I have spent hours and hours researching on here and in books about all my poultry and as a result...I have healthy,happy birds [​IMG]
