    Well I was at my MIL the other evening for dinner and I was talking to her about my chickens and ducks. What else do I talk about [​IMG] Anyway I was telling her about our group coming in next week consisting of chicks, ducklings, and goslings and how we are fixing up their new pens/coops and making the setup really nice. She then asked me if I would like a nice pair of ducks or chickens or whatever I wanted for Christmas, my choice [​IMG] She told me to do my research and get back to her. (As long as it's not some astronomical amount) She was hinting at something ornamental like ducks or geese. I really would love a pair of wood ducks (or similar), but not sure about the rules of keeping them. I also really like Sebastopol geese, Muscovy ducks, and I really love the look of Runner ducks. There are so many different ones to choose from, I just don't know where to start!

    If it were me, I'd go with the Muscovies in a heart beat. But maybe that's just because I'm partial to them.... [​IMG]
