    Hi Steve, I'm new here but I may have some insight on this topic. I have 3 juveniles that we are keeping as pets. The story of how we got ducks is in thread "
    I keep asking myself. How did this happen? The cost of ducks"
    To get back on topic, I let our ducks free range in the yard all day and last week I went out and called for them when I didn't see them in their pool. All three came squeezing out of the garden shed. As I hadn't closed the door all the way. One of the Pekins had gotten into something that left black all over her face. Good thing it wasn't oil and washed right off. One or more of them tore open a bag of chemical fertilizer and ate it. Maybe they thought it would be good grit. Well it has been a week and there has been no ill effects so far.

    I know this was asked moths ago, but I am just now catching up with your story.

  6. I like ducks, but they don't have any beaks, only bills!
    Chickens have beaks, which is why I raise them. It's easy for them to peck

    I agree, they get pretty aggressive when trying to get all the peas from my hand before the other birds. At least it doesn't hurt, unless they are biting my toes, that is,

  9. There is something angelic about those canards, I think you agree
     
  10. My flock of chickens were stolen from me while I was away. Trust no one with your beloved pets'. I'm looking into adoption of some older birds now. But they need love too! I hope God grants me my heartfelt need!
