New to chickens and ducks.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I just wants to introduce myself. My family and I for the first time just got some chickens and ducks. This site has been very helpful to us. We have our 4 golden comets and 2 buff brahmas. They are approx 2-3 weeks now. The brahmas or standoffish but the comets are already like dogs. Growing like weeds. We also got 2 pekin ducks which are adorable and about 1wk give or take. It amazes me how the move as if one and peep if one happens to get an inch away. They are skiddish at first but once picked up the snuggle right up to you. We have our large coop built already however we have not gotten the duck house done. I been having trouble finding what height the house should be and what are the best door dimensions are best. They will be locked in the house at night for safety and free range during the day on our 3 acre land.

Hi and :welcome - great to have you onboard. Congratulations on your new flock.

 

I'd suggest asking about the duck coop on the "Duck" forum - I'm sure the Duck experts will be only too happy to help you out. 

 

The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken / duck. http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center
