    I am a city kid always who always wanted to raise a small farm in AZ. I got 2 chicks, Ameracauna and Rhode island Red, and 2 ducklings, Cayuga and Pekin. Not sure the sex of the ducklings just yet. Got them at TSC just a little over a week ago. Husband are finishing up our coop/run for them to transfer to in a few weeks. I'm so excited and will post pics soon. This site has great advice so far and I'll be sure to post questions. I'd love to get some pygmy goats and some desert tortoises as well by the end of the year. I have 3 dogs who are super curious but obedient around these little onesones so far. That's all for now.

    As a recent new to ducklings owner myself, you may consider a separate brooder for ducks and chicks. Ducks grow so fast and also they will contaminate conditions for your chicks.. Just food for thought..:hugs
