    I have ducks, and have had them for about a month and a half now and I've had some pretty cool reactions! If people walking by see the ducks I always let them come pet them and see them. I am the only one who really has ducks around where I live. Not even chickens, well besides my friend who raises show quality silkies a couple blocks away from me. I live in the burbs so people don't see these animals too often I guess. No one has any problem with them so far so I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get to it!

    I live in the country but my house is still the slow down and look. [​IMG]
    I have ducks and geese in the front yard in the pond, chickens everywhere, the turkey's follow everyone around if they come in the yard.
    A goat or 12 sometimes out front [​IMG].

    As far as what people think, [​IMG] it's my property.

    yinepu Overrun With Chickens

    when i lived in town i had several goats.. I would take them for rides in the car (i had a little horizon hatchback).. it was interesting seeing the double takes from people who would casually glance our way then almost break their necks to get a second look...
    i would also take them for walks on a leash.. people would stop me and ask what kind of dogs they were..
    I would smile and reply that they were a rare breed .. then make up some off the wall name for it...
