OK, So we have been raising chickens now for awhile, then we "some how" ended up w/ a few ducklings in Feb. that we were going to raise at our house for my mother in law til they got a little bigger.....They got bigger and moved to their new home... but ..... What happened???.... I got ADDICTED!! TO DUCKS!! The messiest bird EVER!! It's not like I don't have enough going on w/ two boys 4 yrs and 2 yrs, two dogs, two cats, chickens everywhere... and a very understanding husband! BUT DUCKS!! I thought never!!! AND THEY ALL FREE RANGE IN OUR BACK YARD... Picture my two boys riding their power wheels w/ ducks and chickens all around them, some chasing them (birds chasing the boys, not always the other way around!!)! The birds don't mind a bit, they hardly move when the boys drive past them!!!! And now.... I have 3 magpies, 9 runners (again raising SOME til they get a little bigger for my mother in law) and now eggs in the incubator..... AND ANCONAS hatching!! OMG!!!! What have ya'll done to me!! So I have been a huge BYC reader, love the duck section, and guess I got suckered in.... One duckling just hatched.... 7 more pipped... HOW EXCITING!! THANK YOU GUYS FOR MAKING ME CRAZY IN LOVE WITH DUCKS!!
