    I will be adding my first ducks to the family farm this year. Anconas most likely. Right now I'm in the process of learning everything I possibly can about them. I've never had any kind of poultry before so I feel like I have so much to learn.

    I'd like to know if anyone here has a favorite ducky Youtube channel or a favorite video to share. Even if it's just really basic stuff I'd love to see it.

    Please don't. Mat takes terrible care of his ducks and culls them regularly each year. I have nothing against the cull itself, they're raised for food after all, but if seeing hundreds of birds get their heads chopped off in gory detail isn't your thing, I don't blame you. He also features dead, rotting corpses of otters, owls, and foxes that have taken some of his flock, marking their decomp "progress" each day in high-def as they hang from a tree.

    He's also an arrogant individual who giggles as he watches his sick birds flounder around helplessly due to niacin deficiency, angel wing or some genetic abnormality. He isn't cruel, simply ignorant, and will adamantly refuse any and all veterinary advice. He's even gone so far as to sic his viewers on myself and several other people for offering professional help in getting his birds healthy. He considers it an insult. As a result my page has been spammed and trolled to the point where I considered shutting down my account altogether. Luckily they quickly got bored and moved on, but I still get the occasional scathing comment.

    If you want decent, cute duck channels, here are a few examples:

    https://www.youtube.com/user/baldfatgit1/videos (He's a call duck breeder, also uploads regularly, and he gives 100% for his adorable flock!)

    @Amykins Oh no! I'll certainly keep this in mind if I choose to watch his videos.

    Thanks for the links you provided. Youtube is so full of information, but for someone new to ducks it's sometimes hard to differentiate between the good and the bad.

    As soon as i clicked on his video I knew this wasn't for me I could see right off some of those ducks were having serious problems, what's his purpose? can't be very entertaining for anyone who actually has ducks.

    Either he's an idiot, or he just doesn't care. They're gonna get killed anyway, so why bother, amirite? *grits teeth*

    Pretty sad how people follow something like this. Once i read in a large newspaper from close large city about a young girl who every year at Easter they would get their daughter some ducklings, then when they got grown they would go and dump them in the local pond made me sick that they would make it out to be such a sweet story, She had actually kept a lil Runner duck for a couple years but because she was now in High school and had other interests she was thinking about taking this lil duck down to the river and letting it go. [​IMG] I just kept thinking I hope someone who lives close begs them for that lil Runner I just don't understand people I truly don't.[​IMG]

    It's a sad truth - at least half of all humankind are raging morons.
