        Yes it is, I LOVE Muscovies! I raise them for meat, so that's why I have so many.

    What’s your main reason for joining our community?:
    I’m raising ducks for the first time and would like to connect with and learn from others, and share my own experiences.
    Hello, and thank you for stopping by my profile page! As you can guess from the profile name, I have ducks! I acquired my small flock of six ducks in July of 2019. I started with two black Swedish and two fawn-and-white Indian runner ducklings from MyPetChicken.com. Then I stopped my tractor supply for some feed, and waddled out with two more babies who I think are blue Swedish. What brought me to ducks is my appreciation for animals and nature, and my passion for gardening and permaculture. I somehow decided that ducks could be the best all-natural, organic pest control and fertilizer all rolled into one! Having raised chickens before I thought, "How hard can it be, right," and dove in (webbed feet first)!

    I quickly learned that raising ducks is not at all like raising chickens, and in so many ways is much harder (and messier)! But I fell in love with ducks from day one and I find it incredibly rewarding to six beautiful ducks waddling around my the backyard together with my two border-collie mix pups! I wouldn't trade it for the world!

    I joined the Backyard Chicken community so that I could learn from all of you and share all of my wonderful duck adventures! Well, let's get quackin', shall we?
