Hello everyone, Im happy to have found BYC. We recently purchased two Pekin ducklings, and have been able to find a lot of answers to our random Google questions here. So, I decided to join. Growing up we had Rhode Island Reds, which I adored. Even after being spurred by our Rooster, I still loved them (well, maybe the Rooster a little less). My fiancé and I had planned on getting chickens, but decided until we get a house of our own (hopefully a small farm), we would wait. Which is how we came across the ducklings. Our family consists of my fiancé and I, my son and my fiancés two daughters, our Husky & Aussie, a Holland Lop, a leopard gecko and now our two babies, Lily and Marshall Duck We got them from TSC last Saturday, and from what I can guess, I -think- they are going on two weeks old. Thats basing my guess off videos and pictures Ive seen where someone has posted daily photos of their Pekins. Right now, they pretty much have their own room, well in a big container in their own room, and get plenty of social interaction. During the day, I bring them into the kitchen, and just keep a close eye to make sure they dont get themselves in trouble (they love to explore!) and to clean up their mess! We are in the process of planning an outdoor home for them with a decent sized run and baby pool. Anywho! Thats us in a nutshell!
