    I prefer not forcing them either... now they feel comfortable walking close and 'talking' to me and that's enough for me... plus, they learn if I do have to pick them up it's for a reason and they deal with it well...



    Exactly... and no way to tell if they'll do well or not til they try... if they don't, then they won't be allowed to brood... but ducks are way different than chickens when brooding... there's a reason you can give chickens duck eggs, but not ducks chicken eggs...

    I didn't know that. He has two. There are a few others that have just one or one and a 2nd partial.

    I know. [​IMG]

    Ok, I'll see about it.

    I don't know if that's the cause or not, but I wish it hadn't happened. It never got below freezing those days, high was 54, so I would think that should have been ok.

    Mallards will be smaller and more 'streamlined' too... I looked it up when figuring out what the 2 ducks I got stuck with were, lol...

    Good luck with your new babies!! :)



    Awe... you don't want to join our insanity of winter ducklings??? :gig

    I absolutely love saltwater. Beautiful to look at, beautiful colors, so many different directions you can go, but...
    I had a crash a couple months ago and lost thousands of dollars in livestock. Just now rebuilding. It will take years :hit

    :smack
