    Just adopted a pair of really cute ducklings about a week ago. I was hoping to find anymore duck owners to talk to and get tips for raising my ducklings. :)

    Hi there

    Cool cool :D
    I just got rid of some ducklings the other day that i hatched out, hopefully got some more hatching out in 3 weeks.

    what breed are they and you got any pics?

    If you need any help just ask the questions and myself or others on here will be happy to help.

    good luck with raising your ducklings it will be happy memories all the way.

    cheers mitch

    Yeah i had manderins and carolinas last year, I wouldnt say they are not hard to come by it all depends on the breeding the year before as the weather does affect there breeding if it was a good year you will you pick them up easy.

    They can be expensive aswell up to £100 a pair sometimes more you will pick them up for around £50-£60 a pair, you just need to look around on the internet, I knew someone who had some so got mine from them.

    cheers mitch
