    thanks for having me.
    My name is Mandy. I live in Tracy, Ca. I have 20 chickens. And just got 7 chicks, 3 Rhode Island Reds and 4 of the black and white striped ones. I forgot their name.
    And I just got 4 ducklings. They are about 5 weeks now. (my first time) 3 female Mallards and one white one. Didn't realize they were so super messy. But cute and very timid. I wish they would love me. They are always scared.

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens Mandy, thank you for joining the flock. I don't think ducks get as friendly as chicks with socializing. If you go to the forums above, scroll down to
    "Duck forum." That is a great place for getting answers about them.

    Some say ducks are more friendly than chickens but that may depend on breed. So cute. I would not clip wings unless yours are too flighty since they are mallards. Most domesticated duck are land lubbers and will not fly off. Some mallards may. :):welcome
