Alright listen I don't know what your rules are here for starting off topic threads but time is of the essence and I need opinions. You all strike me as wise people when it comes to the draft so odds are you also know a lot about ducks.

My roommate and I just ordered a baby duck for $55 from eFowl.com. It's a real website. We have a 4 person apartment at the U of Illinois. We don't really care whether the other two roommates want it or not, they won't say anything either way, and we think it will be funny when the duck shows up unannounced. Now, my roommate and I really want a pet duck, but we know nothing of taking care of a duck. Almost everyone we've talked to thinks we'll kill it and are telling us to cancel the order immediately. We really don't think we'll kill it; we've both taken care of other pets before. On the other hand we're in college and enjoy drinking and what not, so that's to be considered.

Anyway, I need opinions. In the off chance that any of you have ever had a pet duck, let me know whether you killed it. If so, let me know where you went wrong. Like I said, there's only so much time to cancel the order, so let me know.

Yeah to be honest, this sounds like a bad idea. Even if you do manage to take pretty good care of it, its going to be alot of work, especially keeping your place clean ( it'll crap everywhere). Plus that not accounting for what other people will do, especially if intoxicated. Not a good idea for a college kid.

my landlord had 2 pet ducks... (I live in downtown Milwaukee) they were pretty badass... You need some kind of yard or something, and a pond is pretty essential.

They need a food source, they'll eat insects and stuff, but you'll probably have to supplement that with some kind of grain or something. They also love cat food.

Ultimately it's a terrible idea, and will only end poorly.

They didn't die, but they really didn't like the snow much... My landlord ended up taking them to a farm in Minnesota.

-edit
also, I don't know what kind of duck you got, but if it's one capable of flying, then be prepared to have to go find it on occasion. You'll also need some kind of enclosed area like a coop for them to sleep in at night if you're going to keep them outside because they will be a target for raccoons and such.

Be prepared to deal with a ton of duck **** too. It's gross, and they **** ALL the time.

While it may be a terrible, terrible idea to get a pet duck, it does sound like it could be very, very interesting. I personally wouldn't even get a duck because I am lazy and would definitely kill it. If i were you, I would try and keep it alive until it gets big, then you have your own personally raised duck ready to cook. Duck is nummy.

I also refuse to believe you weren't stoned when you ordered said duck. No sober and sane individual would ever purchase a duck online in college. + rep because this is ******* funny.

THIS! Do not under-estimate raccoons! Those little bastards WILL outsmart you no matter what you do. My ex-girlfriend had 3 baby chicks, and I had to take care of them for a few days. So the first night I was over there, I fed 'em and everything. When I went to put them away, this is what I did: I put them in a pet-carrier, and suspended it in midair from a tree branch with a bungie cord. So it was suspended in frickin' midair, about 5 feet off the ground. Also, surrounding the area underneath the pet-carrier was a dog pen. So yeah, I thought to myself, "Well done TitanHope, you've got these baby chickens secured. Your GF will love you so much for taking such good care of her chicks that she'll will express her gratitude via frisky endeavors."

So I come back the next day and one of the chicks was gone!!! I was STUNNED! I called my GF and was like, "I dunno how it happened! There were 3 and now there are 2!" I was looking all over for feathers and stuff, but there was no evidence of chicknapping. She was cool about it though, and she said "It's ok TitanHope. Raccoons are evil, demonic creatures and are capable of this." And I was like, "No! I fool proofed this thing! I did not get outsmarted by a raccoon!" And she was like, "Yeah, you did...but it's ok though!!!"

I was a sad panda. I felt bad for the chicknapped one. It got frickin' pulled through a pet-carrier cage door and eaten by raccoons. And yes, I totally brought the other two chicks home with me until she came back. I wasn't gonna leave the little tikes there in that death trap.

So yeah, raccoons, ducks, and canadian geese are all evil and hopefully become extinct some day.

So the consensus seems to be no, which is depressing. I've always wanted a duck. Somebody needs to give me some pros to having this thing. That duck blog doesn't make it seem too hard, outside of needing a coop....

As for the name, my roommate wants to name it Duck, and I want to name it Scrambles. We're adamantly against each other's suggestion, so we'll hammer out the issue when we decide if we're keeping it.

lmao...the bold

i found a duck once, it was a baby duck in reno and i cradled it while i rode my bike home and it lived for like a week, it would follow me and eat ants and cereal...i mean i was only like 10 so it did die, but it would follow me around which was pretty sick

they are easy to take care of though, theres legit duck food you need to get...my aunt and uncle raised ducks and stuff and if you get the dry duck mash they stay pretty healthy.

i could imagine it ******** everywhere though, if i was getting an aquatic bird id get a penguin

I mean, don't let him invite his little duck friends over because where as it sounds like fun, before you know it, they are teenage ducks and they are out of control.

Do not get a duck. I had pet ducks as a kid and they really make great pets. I have 2 siblings so our parents gave us each a duck, 1 male (mine) and 2 females. The entire experience was fantastic. We had cute little baby ducks from egg to hatchlings. All 3 ducks were very social and fun.

But my gawd do they make one hell of a disgusting mess. Trust me, you do not EVER want a duck as an indoor pet. You will literally be gagging on duckshit fumes while you slide around your dorm/apartment on greasy duck droppings.

They will absolutely need a coop outside. Which means you need to have an aptmt and I'm willing to bet your landlord won't be happy with it. I can also guarantee your neighbors won't be thrilled either. Ducks can make quite a racket.

My guess is you should cancel the order.

I think TitleTown is just trying to lull us into a false sense of security so that he can get the last laugh the next time he takes one of us duck hunting.

Once as a child, my sisters and I were throwing rocks at a lake that had a bunch of ducks in it. We were throwing them past them in an attempt to coax them closer to the shore so we could pet the ducks. I believe my 7 year old arm failed me, and I threw a nonliteral duck, which then hit a baby duck, killing the little bugger and sending it belly up. We all freaked out and started running while my older sister took her shoes off and tried going into the lake to save it. She was unsuccessful... Knowlingly I was guilty of murder, I cunningly blamed my little sister for it, thus scarring her for life.

I should probably adopt a baby duck now to atone for my sins...

I also approve of Darkwing...or Scrambles McDuck.

FlyingElvis
02-26-2010, 02:52 PM
I had a friend who would always mess with the ducks when he came over. My dad would always tell him to stop messing with the ducks, but he would always do it. One time he did so when the females had eggs . . . OMFG it was one of the funniest things I have ever seen to this day . . .

The male duck jumped/flapped (domesticated ducks can't really fly) up in the air, squakin' like crazy. It landed directly on his head, got its feet kind of knotted up in his hair, and continued with the sqaukin' and flapping while pecking his head like mad. He was crying, freaking out trying to swat the duck off his head . . .

It was like watching someone who is being swarmed by some bees. You know that crazy looking, frantic, run away while swatting wildly at your own head thing? Yeah, like that, only with a 12 pound duck in attack mode . . .

Funny, funny stuff. No broken arms or even significant damage from all the pecking. He never did **** with the ducks again, though.

All of the cons (if there are any) will be outweighed by the fact that you have a duck.
Think of all the things you could do with said duck:

-take it for a walk (don't forget the leash)
-go swimming
-snowshoeing (shouldn't ducks be good at this because of their webbed feet?)

looking back, and thinking long and hard about this, there really are no negatives to owning a duck.

Possible, acceptable names:
-Daffy
-Darkwing
-Howard
-Donald
-Doofus Drake
-Launchpad McQuack
-Plucky

This is a perfect time for the duck joke...

Duck walks into a grocery store and asks the manager if he has any cheese. The manager gets mad, throws the duck out, and tells him not to come back.

The duck comes back the next day and asks the manager if he has any cheese. The manager throws the duck out again and tells him if he comes back he will nail his beak to the floor.

The duck comes back a third day. He asks the manager if he has any nails. The Manager looks at the duck and laughs. "This isn't a hardware store. It's a grocery store... of course we don't have any nails". The duck looks at him and asks if he has any cheese.

My trailor trash neighbors had three ducks. The alcoholic step dad bought them. They cut their wings so they couldn't fly. They were aight. They'd always quack and be annoying and act tough. Then you would just chase it down and pick it up and it would get all quiet and scared.

Stupid little things. Not sure I see the value in owning one, aside from annoying your roomates.

If it's going to live in your home? Well, let's just say, it won't be living in there for very long, one way or the other. That is, unless you like **** all over the place, who knows, you bought a ******* duck after all, maybe that's how you get your kicks.

Well the funny thing about owning ducks, is that after a while, you start to feel bad for them that they have to live in an apartment. So we put them in a creek on the campus. They're kind of dumb and don't know how to find their own food, but we still make sure we feed them every day. And while it's technically illegal to release domesticated animals into the wild, the nerds that hang out by the creek get a pretty big kick out of them so it all works out.

And BTW, the answer to my original question is no, I should not have gotten ducks. It was a nice experience for a a month or so; then it just becomes depressing how little they want to live in an apartment.
