    Hey all, I'm obviously new to ducks. I have one female pekin named Sunny. (Was thought to be a boy) And I love her dearly. I would just like to talk duck so I decided to join this forum. Who knows, I might even keep more ducks. A little info about her:

    Always hungry
    Loves her tummy rubbed
    Wants company at all times
    Hungry 24/7
    Vicous toward humans she doesn't like
    Quite a different Quack compared to other pekins (still has baby voice?)
    LOUD

    And that's all I can think of right now, we feed her chicken layer from the feed store, cut up veggies. Cracked corn here and there. Insects and fish for treats/excercise. Here's a link to a little journal I posted on another fish forum. I don't have time to make another one. Born June 9th, 09.
    May her brother/sister rest in peace.

    Welcome! She sounds very sweet! [​IMG] How old is your little girl?

    Oops--edited to add--I see you included her birthday. Silly me. [​IMG] She should have her grown-up voice by now, but ducks girl ducks have all kinds of noises they make.

    You have come to the right place! I have learned so much, and the people are wonderful! The down side is that they are ALL enablers that will encourage you to have many more birds than you need. [​IMG]

    You should know that she will only get LOUDER as she gets older.
    At least that's the case with my bratty duck; at least she is beautiful.
