I saw a woman in the feed store on Thursday buying ducks for her preschoolers. I could tell the owner didn't really want her to buy any that day without her buying a heatlamp and other stuff to keep them alive more than a few days. Aggh! I worried about the ducklings future knowing how much work it has been now that I've had baby chicks. Then I saw this ad. I saw it on craigslist and thought what a great idea for new chicks/ ducks and rescue some them at the same time. I would do it too, but I have 6 which is already too many. I might try it next year! Anyone else ever do this? http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv/wan/1107607032.html It said: Around this time of year, many families decide that it will be cute to put a live chick or duckling in their children's Easter basket as part of the celebration. I won't deny that they are adorable, but most families are not prepared to actually raise them in the long run. If you do decide to get these little fluff-balls but then don't want to raise them, please think of me. I will accept any bird, gender/breed/age does not matter, and I will give it a good home. I already have two beloved ducks and 5 great hens, so I know how to care for them and give them a good life.
