    Ok so I will admit, I was NOT a bird person up to 2 weeks ago when we went into the feed store for alfalfa pellets and came out with a chick and a duck. An hour later, my husband picks up our daughter from school and magically 2 more chicks appeared in our box! So now we have 4, yes 4 birds!

    Over the past 2 weeks the little boogers have grown on me. I love to watch them interact with each other and to watch them grow!

    The breeds we have are a sussex, 2 orpingtons, and a Blue Swedish duck. The duck is the only one we are 100% sure of. The Sussex is my guess as I googled the coloring of the chick and found an identical chick on this website under Sussex chick. Will post pics as soon as I am allowed so I can finally nail the breeds down.

    Welcome to BYC. I'm familiar with the Charleston area. I was stationed there from 85-90 while in the Navy. I survived Hugo.
