    I , and dw, are first time chicken owners with 24 6 week old chooks. We did a lot of research here before we leaped in and now we are enjoying the antics of the chooks. BUT..... tonite I looked at some of the posts about ducks. I have always liked ducks and wished we had a pond to attract wild ducks. But pet ducks, that's a new thought. Now I will probably spend this winter researching the duck world. An old retired guy never has enough crazy hobbies.

    LOL. Well, trust me, if you wander to the other animal forums you'll end up wanting peafowl, goats, horses, cows, snakes and a million other things. [​IMG]

  4. Hi Bill! You and the Mrs. need some ducks! I've got Pekins and Swedish and just added 11 Muscovy 'lings. They add a different dimension to the 'Flock of Fowl'.

    I tried the duck thing- they were great but I had all boys [​IMG] I love love love my geese. They free range, don't fly, and come in every night just like the chickens. I could never get the ducks to do that. (we're pond-less as well)
