    I am excited to be a member of this group. I recently bought 4 pullets and less than 2 weeks later one has died. I found this site looking for a remedy but didn't find one in time
    I enjoy them as pets but the eggs are great too. I previously had 4 ducks, but just not for me---I prefer chickens Glad to be a member

    [​IMG] - glad that you have joined us. I hear that ducks can be rather messy and noisy (a bit like me when I'm cooking) even though they have certainly stolen the hearts of many of our members.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - its interesting, even for those with considerable experience
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center, and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you

    All the best

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I am so sorry for the loss of your bird! [​IMG] Sometimes we never really do know what caused them to pass. We can guess many times or have a necropsy done by a vet at the time of death.

    Enjoy the rest of your birds and we are so glad you could join our community! :)
