Please DO NOT…

...purchase a baby duckling because you think that they are cute, which they are, and you would love to show it off your friends or family, or on an impulse, or just because... The life of a domestic duckling is NO different than the life of a puppy or a kitten. They breath, eat, sleep, show emotion, feel PAIN, feel sadness AND need attention!! If you can't give them the constant caring that they need just to survive, please don't buy one just to 'have' one! Pet ducks cannot survive on their own and often come to an untimely and savage death if tossed into a pond with the 'good' intention of setting them free. Each year at Easter, farm stores sell cute little ducklings to families who haven't done their research but think it will be fun to have a duck for a pet. Within a couple of months, the duckling becomes a full grown bird that demands attention the family can't give it.
