    hello all! I came here after finding some good info for raising ducklings and I hope my experiences and interactions will be able to help someone else as well!

    i'm extremely new to ducks and could really use some guidance! My first member just hatched last night and i have another set to hatch next week.

    i'm not entirely sure what breed of duck i have as they were rescued eggs that had been abandoned and were in danger of getting eaten by dogs. But, based on image results from google it looks like I might have a Khaki Campbell.

    As for other members of the household, I have two dogs and a cat that i'm keeping an extra close eye on and making sure they're as seperated from each other as possible.

    Both are full of people with lots of hatching and duck experience. Two of my favorite forums for sure.
