I am wanting to purchase some ducklings for my mother! she lives in Iowa on an old stone quarry there is plenty of open space along with a swimming lake and a fishing lake! I am currently thinking of going to efowl.com and it says that they "suggest" (they really just make it cheaper) that you purchase a minimum of 4. is that too many? she has the financial means and the space and time and what not, but will they bond with her if she has 4? i know it depends on her a lot and her interaction with them but while she is working during the day they are going to have eachother (some times my dad too) im just a little nervous i grew up in valley nebraska so i couldnt have ever had ducks but i have always thought it would be so awesome and now my mom has the space and the freedom to do so i just dont want to mess it up! thanks for helping! i appreciate it all! hope to hear from some of ya soon!
