Hey peoples, as some of you have seen I got a surprise duckling from my DBF's trip to the feed store 5 weeks ago. It imprinted on me, and fought with the chicks so I couldn't put them together. I have been trying to ween it from being so attached to me, but even now she has good days and bad days. On the bad days she quacks loudly for big chunks of time, and now my neighbor (who is a little off her rocker and screams all day herself) has started to throw tantrums when the duckie starts acting up. I don't want her complaining to the homeowner's ass. or the cops because I'm already one chicken over the legal limit and I don't think she would be legal either. I REALLY don't want to get rid of the duck. I accepted it mostly because I wanted duck eggs or a duck for the holidays, but since it thinks I am momma I have come to love it as a pet. -I have a large mirror not in use, can I put it in it's pen to trick it into thinking it has company? -Stuffed animals scare it more than calm it. -I have started college again this week so I can't be with it all the time to keep it quite. -My step-grandmother has fallen in love with it, and she has raised poultry before. She asked me not to eat it and to give it to her if we didn't want it anymore. Yet she is ditzy and forgetful, she has cats that love to hunt, and the area is rife with raccoons and opossums. -Is it too late to get a companion duck close to the same age? Will they make more noise together than the one does now? If this is a better idea, does anyone have any Khaki Campbell's around 5-6 weeks old who lives in the SoCal/LA area that I can buy off of you?
