About a year ago, i asked my parents to buy me ducklings. So one day my mom said to me as we were in a store that sold ducks, and she told me to call my dad and ask him. but he said no. A few weeks later he showed up with chickens for me. And of course, i later bought some more chickens, so now i have 4. I live in the north east U.S. so i have snow in the winter, but my chickens are kept warm and they even still lay eggs in the winter. Anyways, i want ducklings again now. I know i could take care of them, and i have done a lot of research. When i was younger i had ducks too, but at that time i was just a kid and... well one duck flew away and the other had to be given away because it was lonely. So, i know i could easily buy ducklings at a local store, but do i really want them? My dad said i could buy adult ducks.... the only problem is i cant find any to buy.... So i know i could easily convince him to let me get ducklings. when i was a kid i got my ducklings when they were just a day old! But now i have 4 dogs, and i go to school for most of the day. Would ducklings need me to be with them all day? and will everything be fine adding them with chickens? When i added my 2 new chickens to the flock, i watched in horror as the older chickens attacked the new ones!!! But ducks dont have beaks to help protect themselves will i have to wait until the ducks are fully grown to add them with my chickens? any information about ducks v chickens would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks for any help.
