    I am seriously about to freak out about getting some baby ducks!! [​IMG] I keep on looking at baby duck videos,pictures and everything else and I am just absolutely going CRAZY about getting some more!!!!! [​IMG] I can't persuade my dad to let me get anymore because I have 1 duck and she has 5 little baby chickens but let's face it..she needs a ducky friend!! I wasn't supposed to have her but she hatched out of an egg all by herself.I've already got it ALLLLLL picked out and have them here next week. [​IMG] My mom's kinda anti duck to but I've picked out quite the variety already. My girl I've got right now will be laying in the spring(what I was told),and she's a 7 week old Rouen duck.
    Here's my duckie wonderland.
    1 blue swedish pullet
    1 blue swedish male
    1 rouen duck pullet
    1 rouen duck male
    1 khaki cambell pullet
    & 1 cayuga duck pullet.

    There's 2 males just incase something happens to one of them. I mean I've got 6 ducks picked out and it meets the price of $25.00 so someone please tell me that I don't want these ducks and I need to get my mind off of it..I seriously need help here haha [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I CAN'T STAND IT!! I WANT DUCKS!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Boy, have you come to the wrong place to be told NOT to get duckies! We are a bunch of enablers here!
    I'm sorry I can't help you, but I have been bugging the stuffing out of duckluck by continuously telling her that I'M READY TO HATCH DUCKLINGS NOW!!!!
    I hate to tell you this, but I think you may need to be referred to Duckaholics Anonymous...if it works, maybe you can come back and help me out with my need for a duckling fix. [​IMG]

    Wayyy too many drakes (males). Disaster waiting to happen....

    You should have 1 Drake to every 3-9 Females.

    Good Luck with them! We are enablers [​IMG]

    ETA: Never mind....2 drakes to 5 ducks isn't that bad. I misread that [​IMG]

    I'd be looking for ways to casually put duckling videos in front of the parents. I imagine they might melt soon enough.

    Remember, though - to gain support (I speak from experience), keeping the ducky area relatively clean goes a long, long way! And doing extra chores doesn't hurt, either.

    After a while, ducks in my home seem to win people over. The eggs help, too.

    (Just learned how to make custard. Wow.)
