    My name is Suburbanduckmom, and I am a duckaholic.

    I may only have 2 ducks but they somehow manage to take up every extra minute and brain cell I have.

    I have no ducks! [​IMG]:hit
    Can I join anyway?
    I have the desire to own as many ducks as possible!

    But, oh, do I have plans!
    A house in the country, some acreage, and plenty of room for all birds!

    I spend a lot of my day reading this website, and drooling over pictures.
    Oddly enough, I spend a lot of time on a recovery website too!
    (14 years sober on August 18th, so the addictive gene is there, just keeping it to waterfowl, and uh some chickens, and okay, emus?)

    I have no ducks or geese, yet. I live in an apartment. Even if I had a house with a big yard, I would probably be limited in the number of ducks I could keep.

    It looks like your yard is big enough for more! [​IMG]
