    how different is it from taking care of a chicken? Do they eat different food? I really want a turkey...Hubby really wants a duck. My mom wants both. What are good breeds? I dont want a plain white duck I want something interesting.Same for turkey. Want something friendly too. Do they get along with chickens usually or would they need to be separated? Thanks guys!

    I think ducks are the best. They dont smell, are easy to care for and are friendly. I would suggest a call duck or a Mandarin duck. Call Ducks are very friendly ducks.
