    I am looking for a duckling to raise as a pet. I'm near Charleston, SC. I want a basic white farm duck. Thanks.

    Ducks are pretty social animals. I'd suggest you get 2.
    Disclaimer: I am in no way responsible for what happens after your first 2 ducks.
    Disclosure: I started with 2 last August. Now I have 11 including 3 hatchlings.

    Shhhh! Granny! You weren't supposed to tell about the addiction part. It's a secret. First rule of duck club...don't talk about duck club

    I got my 2 female Pekins yesterday which brings me up to 8. I'm catching up to y'all! LOL

    I only have Pekins and white Calls.

    Now I have to start branching out to others.
