Hi! love your site and your duckies! Pistashio says high! ;)
This is THE BEST website on the web!!! We love everything about it, ESPECIALLY the live duck cam!!! You guys are doing such a wonderful job, please keep "quacking us up"!!!
I'm duck crazy and since I found your site I check on your lovely ducks every day - even when I am browsing! It's a real pleasure to see them and I get worried when I don't see them in the picture! Well done - the best site ever.
This is not a question but a wonderful remark regarding your Quacktacular website. I think this is the best website ever! My boyfriend and I will be getting ducks one day and I will be coming to this website for more info. My boyfriend and I get a 50 lb bag of natural duck food and go to Argyle Lake in Babylone, NY (on Long Island) and feed them. There isn't a week that we don't go. Sometimes when I am down we go during the week. We love to make duckies happy! As my boyfriend says..."duckies are for friends, not for eating!"
excellent,informative website,i found some solace reading the-in memory of-our 10 wk young mallard hen died on 9/14/03 while practicing verticle flight,she was a delightful addition to our family and will be always remembered and loved(quacker)cheep,cheep-love always your family
Love the website. So much useful stuff and then there is the live Duck Cam. Thanks. We just lost our pekin and the cam lets continue to enjoy pekins.

Hi, I am a Big fan of live ducks! I have been raising ducks with my brother for almost 12 years. Since my family is allergic to other pets we figured that ducks were the perfect pets. I love ducks now and get new sets every year. I'm so glad you made this totally cool website for duck lovers like me. DUCKS RULE!!!

I love your website. I am a new duck mommy and I felt a little lost until I found this site. We have three ducks, Milk (he's mine), Honey and Pate'. We bought two on a whim and just had to go back and get the third. I love them so much! Thank you for this site. There is so much conflicting information out there, and your site really helps us! Our duck babies appreciate it too!
Thank you for a most informative website on a subject on which valuable and even basic information seems far too scarce, or incomplete. I recently inherited the most loving and lovable duck in the whole world (no, I dont feel I am exaggerating!!). Your website has helped a lot, may you have great sucess with it.

Hi! I just thought I'd say your site is great. We're thinking about getting a duck and I thought I'd do a bit of research, I came across your site and I've found it very helpful. We've had various pets including chickens, but we're considering a duck because we have a very large, empty looking pond and loads of room around the garden to keep it. My Dad adores looking after pets and puts his whole heart into it, and there are plenty of us around to help him! If we get a duck I'll let you know, but in the mean time we've got to make sure we're 100% prepared so I've got to do more research. Thanks again for your help, it's a great site!

IN THE LAST YEAR I HAVE FOUND THAT I HAVE A VERY DEEP INTEREST IN DUCKS. THEY ARE LOVELY CREATERS THAT I WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT. I WANTED A DUCK FOR MY BIRTHDAY THIS YEAR AS I WAS TURNING 17 BUT I DIDNT RECIEVE ONE, SO IN MY CERAMICS CLASS I DECIDED TO MAKE ONE AND PAINT HIM YELLOW, HIS NAME IS "COSMO". ALTHOUGH HE DOESNT MOVE OR QUACK I DO HAVE TO SAY HE SAVES ME TIME BECAUSE I DONT HAVE TO CLEAN UP AFTER HIM. HEHE. MY COUSIN ALI, WHO GAVE A VISIT TO "SLIM" EVERYDAY AT THE PARK ON HER WAY TO WORK, GOT ME STARTED IN THIS DUCK LOVING STATE IM IN. AND IM VERY GLAD SHE DID BECAUSE I ENJOY SHARING MY THOUGHTS ON DUCKS AND HEARING OTHER OPINONS AND FACTS ABOUT THEM. IN CONCLUSION I REALLY ENJOYED THIS WEBSITE AND ILL BE BACK TO READ THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE TO OFFER! THANK YOU FOR SUCH A WONDERFUL SITE

Anaheim, Ca., USA
I was SO relieved to find a website about ducks. I adopted a pekin 6 years ago. Since I knew nothing about ducks I have had to wing it all these years! But my pekin is tough and she's still with me. I look forward to visiting this site in the future.

Memphis, Tennessee, US
You have such a great website! I have been raising ducks and geese since I was 9 years, old and I love visiting your website to watch your cute ducks on the cam!(They always seem to have that look that they know someone or something is watching them)haha. When I am away from my ducks and geese, I just log on to the net and go to your website, and it reminds me of my babies! Ducks are truly great pets! Even though I seem to like my geese more than my ducks, DUCKS STILL RULE! I would reccomend this site to anyone that wants a few quacky laughs, and some info. :) My nickname is goosegirl! Anyways, I love your website, and you did a great job, and I hope the site stays running for a long time!
I LOVE YOUR WEBSITE ITS SO COOL!!!!!!!!

Norwich, CT USA
I am very fond of Ducks, and when my neighbors got two, it made me realize that before I get one, I should do a lot of research, because these animals don't make good pets unless you find out about them, and this website makes that very easy.
I have put your website on my favorites as it is so easy to follow and so very informative. You have the best site I have visited.
. . . thanks to your web site, I have learned so much it isn't even funny, I don't even think I would be able to find a book that is as easy to search, and as entertaining as your site. I could not believe you even e-mailed me back, and answered my question, you are sent from above, a duck definately must have dropped you to earth, in order to help everyone enjoy such a great pet. Thanks for all you do. You are appreciated so much. Jennifer Wigal :-)
It is so nice to find a very informative site, that is both easy to use, and a joy to see. I am a new 'mommie' to 15 new baby ducks, and also have a beautiful pair of older rouens, and have already learned way more in a couple of minute's, then I have reading some of the books I have bought. Thank you for this and the health and future of my precious ducks. I will surely refer your site to anyone with questions.
quack quack!! to all the ducks out there. i love you all and will have you all as pets soon. lots of hugs and quackers jenny your best ducky pal.!!!!!!!!

I have lived on the river my whole life growing up with ducks as part of the neighborhood. Every year we have a few mallards that make our pool there home for the daytime. After being told that bread is not good for them I immediately went out and got duck pellets for them. They love to eat the bugs in our pool but we also keep some pellets out for them so they can come back to our pool instead of being injured in another yard. I love that there is a website that supports our feathered friends.
Carmi, IL USA
Thanks so much for the information. I searched for hours for it. I'm raising 10 ducks to put on the pond. Its only been 10 days and cannot believe how they grow and the care they take.
Live Ducks is great! they have been helpful in everyway with me and "all my baby ducks!" Keep up the good work guys !
i luv the info you have because were getting ducks and we needed facts so we go what we wanted

Hi! I found your site on Yahoo after searching for info on what to feed ducks. There are some ducks that have become new "guests" outside of my office, and I've been giving them food every day as I go into work!:D
I love your web site, especially the duck cam!

Your site and the ducks are a dose of Spring I can experience even in the dead of winter
Just visiting, have pet geese and pet ducks myself and some wonderful stories. Love my pets. Thank You
I have loved this site for ages, ducks being my favorite animal.
I loved your site. Congratulations
I just wanted to say your ducks are beautiful and I love your site. Our landlord won't allow pets so until we move (Sept. 5) the duck cam is the next best thing to having our own duck. Great site!!!
This is an awesome site! I have always wanted a site dedicated to ducks!!
thanks for the entertainment during the day with the web-cam "just another ducky sunny day in California"!
I finally was able to talk to a vet, along with a wildlife conservancy group, and also a pet store - all had the same consensus about feeding birds bread; It's okay in small quantities, but if fed too much bread, it'll fill up the ducks, and they won't eat food which is healthy for them. They like it, but it's nutritionally useless to their bodies. This goes for all birds (and especially water fowl), not just ducks.
As for poppy and sesame seeds - the reason I had asked the question originally is because the bread that was given to us is all seeded. I have a condition called "diverticulosis", it's extremely painful, and I'm not allowed to eat ANY seeds or nuts.
The vet was the only one able to answer about the seeds. He said that like the bread, the poppies and sesames are nutritionally worthless to most birds. In quantity, it could be fatal to some, and would be best to avoid feeding ducks, geese, swans, gulls and pigeons any seeds at all. I also asked about whether birds can suffer from diverticulosis, and he say yes. That could mean those seeds could cause the birds to suffer the same pain I had - and it is extremely painful, birds can't talk and say "help me", and would suffer this in their silence. There are also other medical conditions which seeds can aggravate - ducks don't normally find those seeds, so it's rarely a problem for them. But when people feed them, they tend not to think about that, thinking "animals can eat nearly everything". WRONG! But you already knew that :-)
So, we have some pet stores in the area where I can buy duck pellets, and all I talked to said hands-down that's best for any water fowl.
Thanks for your help, and for nudging me to get answers. When we go to the park to feed the ducks, I'll be bringing an extra baggy of pellets with me, in case there's someone feeding them bread. I'll just swap 'em...thank you again.

I have been a "duck mother" of one since June 2002..... My duck Sweeper is one of the best pets ever!!!
I recently found a sick duck at a pond near my house. I wasnt sure if it would be the right pet for me and how much care it would need but this site cleared it all up. Soon I'll have a family of six instead of five. Thanks Liveducks.com!
Dear Ducky people, your site has saved my ducks life!!! keep it up!!!!!
