  • I Bought a Duck

    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.

    Let me be the first, why the F would you want a pet duck? Those things are killers.

        Well murdering the duck was probably where it went wrong in that scenario.

          I drew the duck blue because I have never seen a blue duck before, and to be honest I wanted to see a blue duck.

            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.

                Everyone knows that ducks are vicious, vicious animals.

                    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.

                      My friend, a college student, has two pet ducks. He claims he likes it, but it looks like a gigantic pain in the ass with little pay off.

                        If they get mad ( which they can ), they hit very hard. They've broken arms.

                          zero payoff... if anything, get chickens. At least then you'll get free eggs.
