I am very interested in ducks and owning ducks. I do not yet own a duck, but I want to get one soon. I would get some hatching eggs, but there's one problem: my family doesn't want me to get one. I personally think that it would be a very good educational opportunity, and a good chance to earn some responsibility. The ducks/ducklings would have plenty of space, as I would build a place for them in my backyard. I would also be able to handle costs such as food, habitats, ect., so money is not the problem. They haven't told me yet their reason for saying no, so I don't know how to prepare my side of the argument. If anyone could tell me some ways to convince them to let me get ducklings, it would be greatly appreciated.
