Hi to everyone with ducks out there. I have had ducks most of my life- but am new to using forums. I have raised about 10 different breeds over the years but just as pets and love ducks for their wonderful character and personalities, and of course love them for all the different colours ande sizes they come in. It was my mum who encouraged my love of ducks, and bought me my first ones when I was four years old. I have kept ducks ever since and did show one of mine for the first time this year. It was a really fun experience which has made me look to keeping ducks for other reasons not just as a pet. So I was just wondering, when did you all get ducks, and why do you have them. Do you keep them just as pets or for the eggs or meat? I guess some of you keep them for show and just for the preservation of the breed. I would love to chat with people about what they find so endearing about these webbed footed marvels.
