Hoping someone can help me separate fact from fiction. I was looking through my chicken catalogue to order chicks and saw mallards in there. The blurb says that these are wild birds that will migrate and likely come back in the spring. This is very appealing to me, but is it true? I'd love to raise a few and let them out to do there own thing. I'm not looking for eggs, I just have always loved mallards and would especially love seeing a few visit every year.
