The title of my topic may seem strange for a chicken site, but it's true. I hope I posted this in the right forum because I wanted to give some feedback about this site and how it has helped me. I originally joined this site because I loved ducks and when I was doing research on them, I would frequently come across posts on this site. So, I decided to join so that I could ask questions and follow along with other people and their ducks. In my signature line is my blog link. The blog is mostly about killdeer, whom I love and of which I've also seen a few posts on BYC about. But, that's not how BYC has helped me with understanding the little plovers. Not only do I read the duck and geese forum, I also read other parts of the sites dealing with chickens and chicken behavior, too, especially the predator forum. And, from what I've noticed is that killdeer act a lot like chickens! Killdeer cluck, puff up, "crow", chase hawks, give alarm calls, and defend their young in a lot of ways that chickens do. Killdeer are more like chickens than most of the other birds I see like doves, pigeons, phoebes and crows. So, who would have known that a site that I joined to learn about ducks would have helped me understand killdeer?
