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.
