So at the feed store, there was one lone pekin duckling, and I've always heard good things about them and already knew how to take care of them so I took it home. It bonded instantly with the other four chicks and I was glad it was happy. It's a girl. And it's supposed to be LOUD when she grows up. I can't have my neighbors complain or they get taken away.... Also, she doesn't like me very much. She won't eat ANY treat from my hand (but will eat it when I drop it) like the other four chicks. She runs away from my hand when I just put it in there, freaking out. Well, when I put my hand in there, they ALL run away, and then like two seconds later, run back, the chicks will run to my hand, and the duck will stay nearby but won't let me touch it. Progress? Ah. I love the chicks, they're nice and friendly....so far I like the chicks better...will that change later? Is it worth risking the noise and the mess? Ahhh! Should I just stick with chickens? Or get a muscovy duckling or something?
