    Hi, I live in northern Nevada. I grew up with chickens and pheasants but now I have two Cayuga duckling. They are so cuddly, I wasn't expecting that. One is sleeping on me and, gross, the other has just pooped down my shirt. I probably won't be able to answer questions but I will probably ask them.

    Guess you didn't know Ducks are the most inventive poopers, they can even manage to get some on the ceiling when they are on the ground. They also like to splash in their water dish and make a grand mess. Of course they have such beautiful eyes, and innocent expressions that you can't work up much hollering.

  9. Welcome to BYC! I too have ducks and chickens. Yes, ducks sure pack a punch in the pooping department! But they have the best personalities!
