Hello! I have been raising chickens for many years, but I am brand new to raising ducks (though I have been researching, and lurking here, for quite a long time). On Tuesday I brought home 10 day old Welsh Harlequin ducklings -- 2 male, and 8 female. And may I say, they are HILARIOUS! I have them in a 4'x4' brooder in my living room at the moment (I promised my son they could be in the house for at least a week...), and it's impossible to walk past them without being waylaid by their adorable appearance and crazy behavior. Anyway, my gratitude to all who respond to questions and concerns, and just generally mentor those of us who are flying by the seat of our pants!
