Or do you go out of town? Or do you bring them along with you? Would you ever leave ducklings in the care of someone else for a weekend? Or how soon would you feel OK doing that? Things to think about in having someone else watch your ducks? My sister-in-law is routing for me to get ducks and has said she'd help watch them as needed. I'm planning to get ducklings next spring, but i know there's one weekend mid-spring we'll be out of town for at least one night. Should I make sure the ducklings arrive after that? I had originally been thinking as early as possible since once summer comes we'd be more likely to go on more trips. And I'm not sure just how precisely such things can be timed. If I get them familiar w/SIL and her well versed in duckling care, think it'll be fine for a day or two?
