    Hi! I actually have a duck. A 22 week old Mallard drake named Bill that I've raised since he was 2 days old. He had a brother named Ted that was tragically killed a few days ago. Currently looking for new flock members for him and it's not as easy as I thought. Anywho, thought I'd join this forum since it's full of great information and help.

    I wanted to add I live very close to Knoxville, TN. In Loudon, actually. I'm a Registered Respiratory Therapist, unemployed currently until my oldest baby starts school next year. Then I may or may not go back. I may just focus on raising ducks!! [​IMG]

    You may want to ask you questions on the Duck thread, ie, should you get a duck about the same age? Male or female etc. Some lonely ducks do not take well to new ones. So that is something to ask about as well.
