Caring for Ducks

Friday, April 19, 2019  

 

 

Before you decide to purchase adorable baby ducklings for Easter gifts this year, please take time to educate yourself about the commitment you are making to caring for a pet duck. The average duck lifespan is 8-12 years which should be considered along with other factors before adding a duck to one's family. 

AAV has prepared a new handout that discusses the importance of a quality diet, clean environment, and protection from predators, along with many other important points to consider. View the printable at the link below.
