    We want to get more but we can't fit any more ducks in our pool. At least that's what I'm telling myself. [​IMG]

    Also, how friendly are your Runners? The big idea is that they are nervous, and flighty but mine are very friendly as long as I don't make any sudden moves. They come right up to me and visit, quacking happily and accept treats and are fairly easy to catch and handle. Willow is so cute when I hold her she sits in the palm of my hand with her neck craned down, making sure she can still see Ivy on the ground...so cute!

    My Runners live outside in a duck coop with a fully enclosed run, but we rotate ducks to spend time inside the house with us. All of them, except for Mallory, love being held and cuddled. When it's their turn to be inside the house, they sleep on the bed with us.

    Vinny and Ollie (adopted from their foster mom, Nettie Kossart).

    Aw! Nettie's ducks are amazing! I remember her post about adopting Vinny and Ollie, so glad they went to a good home! I would love to train house ducks someday :) Love all your duckies!

    I recommend them for sure! They are a riot! I think with proper handling and care as chicks they can be very friendly and docile pets, I love mine. And Nettie's Runners wear little diapers and parade around the city showing off! So cute, I envy her!
