    This is the definition of domestic ducks. Now your neighborhood MAY have a different definition(meaning dogs, cats, like that). You need to find out in writing what they mean by domestic.

    What breed/breeds do you have? Do you live in a subdivision? If you have an HOA, those blasted things are pretty hard to fight.

    I hope it isn't the HOA making you get rid of the ducks. They pretty much control your life. I know that my parents avoided moving anywhere where there was HOA fees. Because of the fact the wanted goats and chickens...and then they got ducks too.

    I would probably wait to buy them...in case they do make you get rid of the ducks.
