    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Do you have any breed preferences?

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens. I lurked for 8 months before I got up the nerve to post something.

    Yes I love ducklings too! Well about chicken I like Rhode Island, though I don't know a lot about them, when I was younger I used to have a Pekin duck, so I guess that's my favorite duck breed

    I've had Rhode Island Reds (along with dozens of other breeds over the years) and they are a hardy, dependable, dual purpose breed that lays lots of large, brown eggs. Also among the few duck breeds that I had were Pekins; not as good a layers as Khaki Campbells, but excellent meat birds. Good luck in getting your flock.
