New Duck Owner

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey, new duck mom here! I'm 21 and living in the New York countyside. I've wanted ducks for as long as I can remember, but I just recently got permission from my parents. I ordered from Metzer Farms and got two Cayugas, a Welsh Harlequin, and a Blue Swedish. Three females and one male(Cayuga). I had a Khaki female, but sadly we had a mishap with my husky(long story) and he killed her a couple of days after I recieved them.

 

I'm completely new to this and I'm really hoping to get a rather decent sized flock of chickens in the future(and probably more ducks) so I'm learning as much as I can now. My little flock is currently 4 weeks old today. Every time I had questions my search always led me here, so I figured I might as well join!

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
