I just newly joined BYC. I'm currently in the process of convincing my parents and older brother that ducks are a good (not just good, but GREAT) idea and would make a good and beneficial edition to our family. I'm still exploring all of the options, but I have a few quick questions on mandarins: If I keep them will they breed or what are the chances? If they do breed what could I do with the ducklings? Should I let their parents raise them or raise them in a brooder? I am open to doing whatever is more beneficial for the ducklings. Thank y'all in advance for any and all responses.
