Hi Everyone
I am trying to decide what to do here... I am going tomm. to pick up either one or two ducklings... I would prefer to have just one but will get two if necessary. They will live out with about 18 chickens, 8 older and ten the same age as the duckling and the chicken yard is quite large and they also free range into the larger dog yard (sans dogs)

My question is do I NEED two ducklings or will one duckling be happy with a herd of chickens and myself?

I have space for two... I can certainly take care of two but would prefer just one... my question is will the chickens be good enough company for him/her or should I suck it up and get two ... I know I will love them both

thoughts???

thank you so much in advance

Steph
