    Try telling him that you are a grown up and he is not your daddy and you don't need his permission to do anything. Just get the ducks if you want them.

    Running it by him first will make him feel good about it and he cannot throw it back at ya later on! [​IMG]
    Seriously I love mine. They are friendlier than other types. Do not mess up the ponds cause they sit beside and sip the water and dip their heads in to wash. Excellent broody momma hens and will set on any eggs you give them!
    Forage but like a feed pan with water beside it.. They can stay out at night in yard with less danger of predators getting them.... And like mentioned before they are QUIET...... And they come in variety of colors.....They get along well with chickens..Mine are so laid back that it ain't funny.. enjoy them!

    These are my new babies. They are soooooo cute!!

    Good luck. I hope you get some. They are great ducks with wonderful personalities! And, yes, they are very quiet compared to other ducks. They are great for eating bugs, mosquitos, etc. They wag their tails like a dog. Mine big drakes follow me around like puppy dogs!
