This forum has been enormously helpful. I think we are going to go with four Welsh Harlequin females; either very young or new ducklings so that we can handle them a lot to get them used to us. Although I'd love to start now with some rescue ducks realistically I think we should wait till the spring. The weather here can be horrendous and I can't have four ducks inside like I did with Pete. Thanks again and I'll be lurking till I have more questions. Cheers!
