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.
