I was not planning on getting ducks. No way, too messy. Then I kept reading things like "add ducks to your flock!" in poultry magazines.... I find out I actually don't have to have a pond or kiddy pool year round.... Hmmm I find out they co-mingle which chickens quite well.... Hmmmm I read all the benefits of duck eggs.... Hmmmmmmmmmmmm Crap. I think I want ducks. But before I do this, I want all you duck owners to tell me the real nitty gritty of ducks. I need to know more than just the glorified magazine articles. So feel free to vent!
