    I really want some ducklings to have as a pet as well as getting eggs and meat from them, My parents will only allow ducks when I get my grades up (7th Grade). I have done research everyday of how to keeps ducks healthy and how to care for ducklings. I want some mix breeds of ducks like Rouens and Pekins and Cayugas together, but I just don't know what's the limit. I want to know what is the limit of ducks in Wisconsin. I plan to get the ducklings at my Blain's Farm and Fleet in Madison,WI.
    If you can give me an answer of what the limit of backyard ducks/waterfowl/poultry is in Wisconsin I would gladly appreciate it.

    There won't be a limit set by the state. Each city has its own ordinances that regulate that and they vary widely. Some have no limits some don't allow any - and everywhere in between.
    Subdivisions usually disallow them.
    You'll have to contact city hall (if you live within city limits) and ask for a copy of the ordinances. If you're outside city limits, county ordinances will apply. Those are usually less restrictive.

    City hall (probably the clerk or code enforcement officer) should be able to answer that for you in minutes.
