Just read a post about ducklings imprinting on someone that hatched eggs in her incubator since her broody hen decided to quit sitting on the eggs. I didn't know ducks imprint! Can someone explain this a little bit more to me please? We're still in the pondering process of weather or not ducks will work for our mini-farm (still in its infancy). If I were to get ducks, I'd thought I would just order a couple from a hatchery like I did with chickens. Does that mean they won't be as attached to me? Also, if I get hatching eggs, and they imprint on me, will they be okay in a coop/run area or will they be sad they can't follow me around? I was only thinking of getting a pair and if I hatch eggs, I will be taking my chances that I'll get what I want. Help! I want this to be as easy on DH as possible... if we even do this... better to just order the first ones from the hatchery?
