    Hey everyone! I'm new here! Obviously! This past fall I adopted a Rouen Pekin mix after my cat passed away. I needed a new little sidekick and a lady happened to be needing a home for some ducklings! So I decided, why not? So far everything is going well! Minus the lovely winter in Ohio! Just trying to keep my little guy warm and happy! Any advice, tips and tricks are totally welcomed! [​IMG]

    IF you only plan to have the one duck you may be interested in having him as a house duck. Please check out the "show us your house ducks," thread. Put that in the search box and it will pop up.

    G’Day from down under fenwickfeather [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some great links I will just add that I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Hello and :welcome! I hope you enjoy BYC just as much as the rest of us do! I know what you mean about the Ohio winters. :sick We're up here in Northwestern Ohio and this winter has been pretty cold so far! You've been given some great advice and links, so best of luck with your duckie! :)
