    I got my two ducklings about two and a half weeks ago and I read something online about how ducks need me everyday. In the future I plan on traveling and I wont be able to take them to all the places I want to go. How would they be if I had someone come watch them everyday? Would they really get depressed and miss me too much?

    Okay, calm down here. Your ducks don't need you that much. Unless they imprinted on you from birth, which I doubt, they'll be just fine with proper care. Ducks are independent. Not even close to a dog.

    Your ducks should be fine
    I agree with all the above

    Unless you hatched them yourself they probably didn't imprint. I've had mine since they were two days old and they did not imprint. They prefer each other, rather than me, for company.
