    I got a duckling May 3rd. He's so cute. Boy they grow fast. I think he's a teenager now. Very smart. Am house raising him. In a rubbermaid tote. He goes out every day & swims & eats grass. Just looking for any advice on raising a house duck. Thanks:thumbsup

    @Kkrista123 @SuperDuck could probably give you some really good advice! I am sure there are more but for the life of me I cannot remember them. Sorry guys! They both have awesome house ducks! Enjoy your duckling

    Most people eventualy get a second duck and only bring them in to sleep, But dedicating the time and patience to an indoor duck takes alot of love!

    Goodluck and keep us updated!

    @MarlyMonster is making duck diapers too

    Be prepared for a lot of laundry! I'd definitely get a second friend for your baby so it's not alone.

    And raising a duck indoors is just like having a puppy..... but can't be potty trained.
