I picked up my first ducks today, 3 two week old mallards. My mom and I had been talking about getting ducks, and she called me from the feed store last week to let me know they had some ducklings. So when I went there, they had been reserved by someone else, but they took my number and said they'd call when they got more in. So today, I got the call, turns out the guy that was going to be buying them changed his mind, so I brought home 3 little ducks! I do have a few silly questions, though- How can I tell them apart? And how can I tell their sex? I'm sure I'll be able to tell them apart as I get to know them more, but I'm impatient, and I want to name them already! Also, they are really shy. Will they warm up if I'm patient with them? I've read its best to get them as young as possible and handle them from the start, even a few weeks can make them shy for life- is that true? They are pets, so I'd like them to be friendly.
