I was wondering if there was someone that was close to me to help teach me what i am suposed to do with all my ducks? I am in Hermiston OR. I have a duck that is about 3 weeks old that thinks it is a turkey, 3 two month old turkeys (bought same time as the duck) and just got a shipment of 11 from METZER that were born May 14th (or the 13th if they hatched early). I just dont know if I am doing everything right for them all.

Heard, OregonBlues is out your way and can help answer questions geared towards where y'all live. There is also state threads here on ByC in the Where Are You area. You would find more "local" to you there as well.

Stoney's guide is good, Metzers has wonderful pages of suggested topics for raising ducks. Then there is just here in the duck thread. Good luck with your new flock!

Good for you, gather as much info as you can, hang out here and ask questions when you need too. Then when you get all your duckies it's very important that you post pics so we can ohh and aww over them.

we don't know we just got the mixed straight run we think that most of them are rouen but don't know what they all are for sure. i almost think that is the way to go for a new duck owners. and we will get to see how they all act and we will get a couple differant colors of ducks
