Let me begin by saying I am completely new to having ducks as pets. About three weeks ago for my birthday I was gifted three ducklings. I had always joked about having my very own “duck army”, well here was the beginning. I have three different breeds; Pekin, Rouen, and a Khaki Campbell. Right now they’re living in the basement while their duck house is under construction. Ever since acquiring these ducks that’s been my free time, reading books and internet blogs (like this one) to ensure they’re taken care of properly. My youngest also enjoys playing and loving on the ducks. She even named the Pekin Dwight. Our golden doodle wants the ducklings to be her new best friends. I’m hoping she’ll help protect them once they’re outside.
