So what about ducks? I go to the farm supply store to pick up my baby peeps and there they are. Just sitting there doing what ducks do and being absolutely adorable. I almost had to bring a few home when I was there and they got to my son as well. Then last weekend my husband comes home from his day and tells me he almost brought me home a couple of little baby ducks. At this point I hadn't entertained the idea of ducks added to the backyard flock. But now, now I have the idea in my head and can't shake it. I have been reading and looking up information on ducks since then. Trying to learn as much as I can. I have learned that they are messy and that they poop a lot. I have also learned that they are very friendly and make your chickens more friendly, that they rarely contract illness'. That the ducks can eat what the chickens eat. And so much more information. I have only touched the surface. There is a lot of positive to go with the ducks. The negatives for me are the messy part and that they get water everywhere. So even if I kept the waterers in the run there would still be a watery mess. Just in the dirt, turning it to mud. But how much mud? Should I just stick with chickens? Or do I get ducks? Am I letting their cuteness get to me? Ducks or no ducks? That is the question. Any of you have experience with ducks? Advice or guidance?
