    I know I'm probably the stupidest person in the world...but I couldn't help it. I can have poultry as long as no one complains, and I went and got a...female pekin duckling. I saw it in the store, looking at me, and I couldn't help it.....

    But I heard pekin girls were LOUD. Ahh...im scared someone will complain. Do they quack all the time? Or only when you go out there with them? Are they really annoying? I also have 4 pullets who befriended her almost right away...is the noice of the chickens and the noise of the duck very different? Will neighbors think its just a random annoying bird? Idk, but my yard is about 2000 sq ft, and I have a neighbor right next to me, and a neighbor right at the end of my yard.

    I've never heard a pekin quack...so...should I find her a new home? Or...D: I would love to keep her, she's a sweetie.

    You should be fine. Pekin girls do have a really loud quack and they are chatty, but it's usually not as obnoxious for neighbors than a rooster crow. I'd keep her and talk to your neighbors to let them know that she may be chatty. That way if they have a problem they may feel more open to letting you know.

    Good luck with her [​IMG]

    Okay, I will definitely talk to my neighbors, thanks! [​IMG]

    Do they always quack? Or only at special times(like when they lay an egg or see me?)

    My pekin female is extremely loud and I also have neighbors all around. I am hoping I don't have to take her out to a friends place in the country. I keep telling her to quiet down ;-) but she just won't! Good luck! I suppose they all have a different quack range.
