Yesterday, I asked my wife to run to town to pick up my new cell phone. Unfortunately the night previous I dropped my phone and the screen shattered. Luckily, we have some very good friends that had the same phone I did so we were able to get it from them. So, my wife heads out to get the phone and while she is there, our friend gets a phone call from the Post Office. Her baby ducks are in. Apparently, she over ordered for fear that some might die in transit and to make a long story short, my wife came home with a cell phone for me, a kitten for my daughter and a baby duck. Oh and one more thing, a speeding ticket. So, now we have a baby duck to go along with our new chicken friends. I plan on keeping the duck in a brooder until it is old enough to head outside. But I don't know if I can mix it in with our chicken flock later in life. I would love to be able to have it integrate with our chickens but I don't know if we should. BTW, the duck is amazingly cute with the kids. They have been playing with it non-stop. It follows them around the yard and is quite cute with them. I can see why my wife decided to bring it home, it is certainly adorable. Any advice would be appreciated.
