    Hi, looking for info on chickens and ducks. I have a smaller back yard and would love to keep some for the eggs and to keep the bug population under control. I've not kept any type of live stock before. Just dogs.

    Hello[​IMG]and welcome to BYC!

    Glad you joined! This is definitely the right place to find all you need to know on raising poultry! I would first check out the learning center: https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center for helpful articles. You can go to the duck forum for specific information on ducks:https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks. If you want to find other people living in your area I suggest stopping by the where am I? Where are you! forum: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you. If you have any questions feel free to ask!
    Good luck with your poultry keeping adventure!

    The link to the duck forum doesn't seem to be working. Thanks for the helpful links!
