    I'm ordering some Indian Runners in the spring to add to my garden. I've been looking into local ordinances and learned that the FWC regulates all mallards except pekins. I should qualify under the pet use permit since I only want 6 for eggs and I don't intend to sell them. This will be my first time raising poultry, so I'm super excited and want to do everything right! I've already checked my zoning and I'm in a residential agriculture zone, so no trouble there :D.

    Does anyone have experience with the permit?
    Does the FWC come inspect?
    How large is your set-up? (Pictures?)
    I plan to order my ducks from Metzer online, but I'd rather shop local. Does anyone know of anywhere that sells runners in the Pasco area? Yes, I'm willing to drive a little ways to pick up my babies.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
