We chose mallard ducks, not only for their beauty but also their ability to fly and escape predators. Not many domestic ducks actually fly. We had a bad experience learning this lesson with our first set of ducks. These babies hatched 4/26/2021 so we can't tell how many of each sex we got yet, but are excited to get them on the water. Mallard ducks are a game bird in Texas so we have to keep records on them and also have a license for them and the quail. We are most likely only keeping these ducks as pets but needed a page of their own.
