    Hi all,

    I'm Brandi from Maine. I live on a couple of acres and have finally convince my husband ducklings and chicks are a good idea, so here I am! I have four ducklings coming; Cayuga, Black Swedish, Blue Swedish, and Welsh Harlequin. Two chicks; Buff Orpington and Black Giant. I am super excited! I just decided to join this forum because it seems I'm already always here looking up info. This will be the first time I get them, hopefully not the last!

    Thank you! I have, it's awesome! I know, I only got four duckling so I could kind of figure out how much food and supplies would cost and that sort of thing. I already keep thinking to myself "hmm, maybe I should have gotten six instead of four" I can't wait, I get them the first or second week of April. Coming right up!
