    I have never raised ducks from ducklings all 8 of mine have come to me by rescues. So walking past the ducklings at TSC today to get some supplies was sooooo hard lol they are to adorable!

    Maybe another time :) pretty sure though if they would have had a bigger breed (they had mallards right now) duck I would have caved HA :D

    I love how ducklings in those bins crowd around to check out your hand, unlike chicks which try to get away.

    And ducks always have smiles on their bills - baby duckling even more so, happy little things. "Whatcha got? Whatcha got? Anything for me? "

    I cannot resist Cayuga ducklings.

    I too was tempted at TSC yesterday. Luckily all they had were mallards and I have those. But the speckled sussex chicks... oh man. I must have stood there for 15 minutes trying to justify the purchase. And when the girl asked, "Can I help you with some?" I said, "No, I'm NOT getting any. Not gonna do it. Turn around slowly and walk away."

    She said she hears that response all the time. LOL.

    I wish ours had something besides mallards and rouens. (co-mingling of course) They didn't even have Pekins! Who doesn't have Pekins?

    Oh man, I just barely talked my husband into chickies. I doubt I'd be able to get ducklings, too. Ha!

    Our TSC gets different kinds I assume after they sell out maybe? I always wonder what happens to those poor babies if they don't find a home? Do they get shipped back to the hatchery?!

    Anyways yeah if they get a larger breed id probably get 2, I just have never had mallards id think my big breeds (pekin/rouen) would just fight with them.

    I try to always stay away from TSC during chick days but this past Thurs. my dad and I stopped by I need FR. and there was 3 lil pekins only it's a good thing there was 3 or even just 2 because if there had only been 1 my mama instinct would have taken over and home it would have come.
