    I want to get baby ducklings possibly. The problem is that i only have 2 yrs left of highschool then i'll go to a college about an hour away. If I get more than one duck will they be fine until I visit on the weekends or would it be a bad idea all together?

    My ducks stole my heart before I even opened the shipping box. It is not easy for me to leave them, though I do a few times a year, and there have been caregivers who do a wonderful job. But most of them have moved on.

    Tough decision.

    They will be attached to you, too, most likely.
