So, I have been following BYC for a while now, trying to figure out if they are right for me and my family. We are almost decided, but I have one more question. Everyone we have asked so far says that ducks are cute, funny, and smart, but SO messy! So messy that none of them want ducks again. My question is, is the mess worth it? We only want 2 ducks, so with two ducks, is the mess horrible? Also, if we get ducks, we want to get them from a local IFA. IFA carries Cayugas, Pekins, and Blue Swedish. We fell in love with Cayugas, but we are not sure on the second breed. Does anyone have experience with either breed? We do have the option of a special order, though. BTW we live in an urban neighborhood, if that changes anything. Thanks in advance!
