I have recently just purchased my first chickens and ducks! A lot of my neighbors have chickens and I work at a ranch and home supply, so I have come to know a bit about them. I currently have 17 chicks and 4 ducklings that consist of 14 different breeds. I have three different breeds of Wyandottes, two New Hampshire Reds, one Red Star, two Light Brahmas, a Speckled Sussex, two Blue Cochin, two Rhode Island Reds, two Silver Laced Polish, and a Sagitta. I also have one Blue Swedish Duck, one Runner Duck, and two White Pekin. Even though, I have only had them for a few weeks I can already tell how much fun they are and they all have names. I find all the posts very interesting, and can't wait to be more active in posting.
