    so, im looking forward to raising about 6 ducks in a neighborhod. I want to sell the ducks eggs for about 4.50 a dozen, but do you think the neigbors will be mad if they figure out we are raising ducks?

    I don't know about your neighbors but, your town or city hall may not allow it.

    If they are legal to have in your neighborhood and you show some courtesy toward your neighbors (keep things clean, don't let them off your property, etc.), the neighbors might be just fine with having ducks next door. And a few eggs once in a while can help with that. If they aren't legal to have at your home, the neighbors could complain and you'd be looking at fines and relocating the ducks. Best to check the legality before getting them IMO.

    Good luck!
