New duck mama

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, Im happy to have found BYC. We recently purchased two Pekin ducklings, and have been able to find a lot of answers to our random Google questions here. So, I decided to join.

Growing up we had Rhode Island Reds, which I adored. Even after being spurred by our Rooster, I still loved them (well, maybe the Rooster a little less). My fiancé and I had planned on getting chickens, but decided until we get a house of our own (hopefully a small farm), we would wait. Which is how we came across the ducklings.

Our family consists of my fiancé and I, my son and my fiancés two daughters, our Husky & Aussie, a Holland Lop, a leopard gecko and now our two babies, Lily and Marshall Duck smile.png

We got them from TSC last Saturday, and from what I can guess, I -think- they are going on two weeks old. Thats basing my guess off videos and pictures Ive seen where someone has posted daily photos of their Pekins. Right now, they pretty much have their own room, well in a big container in their own room, and get plenty of social interaction. During the day, I bring them into the kitchen, and just keep a close eye to make sure they dont get themselves in trouble (they love to explore!) and to clean up their mess! We are in the process of planning an outdoor home for them with a decent sized run and baby pool.

Anywho! Thats us in a nutshell!

Ducklings are the ultimate adorables.   That's about all I know about them except they are very talented at pooing on everything, and love to splash in water. For good answers to your questions about them  please post on the "Duck thread."  Just put that in the search box and it will come up.     Thank you for joining the Backyard Chickens flock  :frow

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
