    You are just about as insane as the rest of us here. One more won't make a big difference in how much care you need to give them. I love my ducks, but we had to get a minimum of 8 at tsc 2 years ago and they really mess up their brooder fast. So you have to change the bedding constantly because they are super poopers who splash their water everywhere. besides I think they bond with their people better if they are raised in a smaller group.
