    Ducks are way cute, I think it is their big , innocent looking eyes. You can post on the duck thread (just put name in search box) for your questions of a duck nature. Please check out the "Learning Center " above for a good poultry education. [​IMG]

    Thank you so much! We are so excited for our new adventure. The chicks and ducks are so much more personable then I would have ever imagined! [​IMG] trying to teach our children the value of being self sustaining. We are from RI. That is great advice and I will certainly search my area!

    Ducks were 3 weeks on tuesday[​IMG] chicks were also3 weeks tuesday, getting moved to pack and play today since they are getting a bit crowded now. They look so grungy cause they keep splashing water [​IMG] any suggestions? I have the waterer up on a dish so it's harder to walk in but they like to sit on the edge of it[​IMG][​IMG]
