    My Zoning Officer approves of Quacker! He said "He doesn't care what I do as long as it doesn't disturb anyone." So I'm going to get Quacker a friend who will also be imprinted. I want a single day old drake. Anyone able to ship me a baby? I don't want and can't have anything else but I would accept warming chicks and just rehome them. I want to raise him just like Quacker but with more training and structure from the start.

    Thank you! I can't wait to get her a friend. She may be imprinted but with me starting college she needs a friend of similar size that she can either live with or live next to. Imprinted ducks think that they are human right? So two human-ducks should hit it off if they are introduced slowly and with training.

    An imprinted duck meeting another duck, even if the other duck is imprinted will soon realize it is a duck. Does not necessarily mean it won't think of you as part of the flock though.
