In the Brooder
- Nov 6, 2012
I have an indoor duck, Fabian, and I'm getting a bit worried about people mentioning personality disorders, biting, etc in indoor ducks. Also one of my housemates (read: arch-nemesis) is insisting I'm being cruel and threatening to call the rspca (then again, she is an utter moron), so I was hoping for some expert duck owner opinions. Fabs is pretty much the best pet I've ever had, pooping aside, so I really want her to be happy. She lives in a large dog kennel inside, with woodchips and drybird on the bottom to ward off stinks and wetness, as well as to protect her from the cold metal bottom. I have an 8' by 8' paddling pool for her that she spends hours in every day. I take her for long walks in the park (we try to do 2-3+ a week, sometimes daily). She seems totally content, happy to follow me around at the park and chat to me while I work in my room or cuddle with me while I draw (she sometimes does try to eat my eraser). I don't have any other ducks but I sometimes take her for walks with a boy who owns a couple of rouens. She's totally easy to train and seems (to me) like she lives the high life. Does anyone have any suggestions about things which would improve her rock'n'roll lifestyle? (I can't really get another duck as my housemate would probably kill me.) I would completely appreciate some advice!
