    Hi, my name is Amanda! I live in a small town in South Georgia. I have had all kinds of animals during my life but I did not become a duck mommy until this past April. I got 2 ducklings from my local tractor supply store on April 10th, 2019! I did not realize how involved I would become with my little quackers! I have never had an animal grow and change so freakin fast! I have 1 male Pekin and I did have a female mallard before she got kill about a month ago. ☹️ I’m currently looking for some girls for my lonely male(Jack)! I really want some Welsh Harlequin ducks! My ducks are pets only.

    I am a nurse in a small ICU. I am an animal lover! I also have a black lab, a chocolate lab, a dog I rescued(pit and beagle), a guinea pig, a saltwater tank, and also a few cats! I’m here to learn as much as I can!

    Hi Amanda and welcome to BYC! So happy you decided to join our flock. Ducks are natural comedians and a lot of fun to watch. I'm sure with all the other critters, chickens must be in your future as well. :jumpy:jumpy:jumpy
