perhaps scheduling a supervised visit to a petting zoo will help you get a gripI feel kind of evil right now because I find myself eager for spring and sort of rooting for lost/orphaned ducklings that I can rescue and cuddle for a day or two before taking them to a wildlife rehab place. They're so tiny, fuzzy and cuuuute.
I have a really bad living space for keeping adult ducks. I'm in the suburbs, surrounded by neighbors. No fenced back yard. Full time job. Elderly relative.Why do you want to do that? Why don't you just get some and keep them? You seem to be very interested in ducks.
