    Ok, I have to admit I'm smitten with the ducklings. Me, the person that thought chickens were enough. Me, the one that was thinking of adding geese. Yeah, I want ducks now.

    These breed focus threads are hazardous...they should come with a big red warning label!

    Maybe Miss Lydia, but I'm not pulling the trigger until spring!

    And I'm counting on you to be my "go to" answer person when I get them, lol.

    I'll enable [I mean help as much as I can ] [​IMG] Lots of experience on here as you know.

    At least you have quite a while to decide which breed you want to go with or have you already decided?

    I lost lots of great pictures to the red heat lamp with my 'lings... They can handle lamp off for 5 minutes for pics/videos. If they start huddling, you have left it off too long and they need a break but they grow up so darn fast that good pics are important too!

    I'm leaning toward the Runners but we'll see.

    And yep, I've seen that great duck support in action. You duck gals are A-OK!

    I might have to! Or maybe switch to the clear lamp during the day, that always makes for nice pictures...
    Yay runners!!! I'm not biased or anything but they're the best! ^_~

    You have some really good looking ones. I have totally enjoyed reading all the duck breed focus threads but there is just something about the Runners that draws me back to them.
