    These came in yesterday from jmhatchery.com. They are out first ducks and are supposed
    to be meat birds. My DW already killed that idea and started planning the pond. [​IMG]

    Quote:Not only are they cute but they have little personalities. Watching them
    in their mini swimming pools is SO FUNNY. When they eat they bang their
    heads like they were at a rock concert. They are so friendly too.

    I'm a total duck newbie. [​IMG]
