    yep they are messy little things and smelly too. I have a house duck and even though he goes out side a visits with the other ducks and chickens he likes to be in the house too, so either he is in his diaper harness or I am following him around with oxine spray and paper towels, thank goodness i have old wood floors. enjoy them while the are little they grow so fast.

    Yes they are VERY smelly. I had them in my room for about 3 days and its smelled so bad! Now they are on my poarch, with a heat lamp (they had a heap lamp in the house to) my mom kept nagging on me about geting them outside. Lol. I have been taking them swiming almost everyday now, they love it!!! But I still want them in a fence lol.

    I know exactly how you feel about that. Mine are 3 weeks and starting yesterday I have been putting them in the duck coop during the day and bringing them in at night because of the smell. They are cute, but smelly and have already dirtied up the entire duck coop. You gotta love them though [​IMG] It's so cute when they chase my mallard ducks (which the are already about half the size of) around. My mallard girls are wimps [​IMG]
