Default Stu wants ducks

I believe I mentioned this on the AO before - Stu wants to keep ducks in our backyard. He even has a breed picked out (but I can't remember which)

I am against having ducks, due to:
1. Duck shit
2. Ducks attacking me




but then I saw this:

I might reconsider.

Get ducks, thank me later. But if it turns out badly, you have no one to blame but yourself.

I may demand the Australian Shepherd. Stu used to have one (that herded kids), so maybe he will be amenable to the idea.

Australian shepherds are a lot of work. They need a job to be happy. I doubt you really want your ducks to be herded around all day -- they would be too stressed to lay.

Why ducks, and not chickens, by the way?

Could a mod change the title of this thread to "Stu Wants a New Duck"?

I've seen geese attack people many times, but not ducks. Maybe you have Anatidaephobia.
