  1. "Do ducks make good pets?"

    "Well leme tell ya. This duck follows her owner when she goes for a swim. I love ducks"

    That is literally all I got from this.

  2. ill help you guys out since this video isnt helpful. ducks make amazing pets, but you gotta give them everything they need. if you are going to have more than 8 ducks, make sure one is a drake (male) and the rest Female. if you have 2 drakes to 6 or less hens, they will fight a lot. sometimes to the death. easy way to get out of it is to just have hens. no drakes. i have one drake, and i had 4 hens, but they had 5 babies recently. hoping they are all girls. they are amazing pets. they have a pond, a nice coop. and they are very cuddly if you are always with them. dont give them only an hour of attention a day or they will not like humans. my ducks love me so much.

    If you are keeping them forever, and not to eat, make sure you get them the expensive duck food. if you get them the cheap duck food that is all protein and fat, its to make them good and plump in a years time for slaughter and makes them super unhealthy in the longrun. you do not want to feed them the inexpensive "poultry feed" for their whole life. i learned that the hard way :/ make sure you get them premium "waterfowl" food. they will have the most beautiful feathers and will have amazing energy. |

    they are amazing pets, but they are certainly not dogs or cats. they should not have a harness.. even the diapers are kinda cruel. i dont do that anymore. its hard to have ducks inside without diapers though because they can not control their potty time. pottytime is anytime for fowl.

  3. Do ducks make good pets? I feel it takes a special person to undertake a 15-20 year commitment to take care of the equivalent of a 3 year old human child.
