Hi folks, we have two 1 yr old Pekins and we love them so much. I signed up here when we first got them and lurked enough to get started. Things have worked out really well, thanks. Gladys and Amelia are daylight free rangers that are accompanied by one or two dogs most of the time. We live in the woods in the mountains and these ducks do a lot of climbing. They own half our back deck in a low fenced section with a secure coop and hang out after dark in their little world till we go to bed around eleven. When you go in to put them to bed, Amelia walks right in the coop. Gladys insists on being picked up and placed inside. Too cute. I've read some things lately that made me question some of my techniques for caring for the ducks so I look forward to spending more time here. They seem to be thriving and very healthy and happy. And they run/flap so fast it's hilarious.
