    Seriously? You expect this group on BYC to discourage you from getting ducks?

    How about this? You already have pet ducks. Now it is time for you to graduate to quality ducks and away from the hatchery and feed store quality ducks. You live in an area with some fine poultry breeders.

    Did that help?

    OB makes a good point... if I lived even a state away from holdereads I'd be overrun with ducks. So go ahead and tell yourself you'll pick up a few SQ ducklings from a nearby hatchery.

    I'm planning on getting some welshies from duckgirl89 when she hatches them out so that's what I've been using to fight impulse buys [​IMG]

    My cats constantly remind me that we have enough ducks.

    Ion looks into the basement every day, then up at me as if to say, "They are still here. When are you getting rid of them?"

    I still brought in a couple of rescues last year. . . .

    My DH is always telling me we have enough ducks and I have a duck sitting on 7 eggs. I think instead of getting more ducks you should look into geese. [​IMG]
