    DUCKLINGS! I know you thought I was going to say chicks. [​IMG] I promised myself no chicks as my 12 girls are just starting to lay....but these little things peeped "take us home".

    I wish my TSC carried those ducklings [​IMG] Only ducklings we got were white pekins. So I grabbed 8 of those [​IMG]

    Quote:Wow! You've got your hands full. These 4 are Mallards. Obviously I know what they'll look like, but know nothing about them. [​IMG]

    I just put up a question list in the duck forum.

    I have a couple of Mallards and they're wonderful.
    They do tend to want to take off if given the opportunity, though.
    I can hand feed my Mallards. [​IMG]

    Great to know they are friendly. My 3 yr old loves the chickens and I'm hoping the same for the ducklings.

    We live on a creek and have several wild mallards that we feed in the yard. NO white bread! I give them 5 grain chicken scratch... anyway.... we have been thinking about getting some ducklings that are native to our region, raising them and then letting them go in our creek to have semi-tame different breeds of ducks.
