    Hi, my name is Kayla. I've been finding great information and advice on BYC for quite a while just through google searches, so I finally decided to join!
    My family has raised small flocks of chickens for as long as I can remember. Currently, we have 10 chickens (a few different breeds, but I'm not sure which ones), 4 ducks, 3 cats, and a rabbit.
    I'm rather new to raising ducks, and we also just had our first broody chicken ever, so I'm looking forward to learning a lot. :)

    Hi Kayla and welcome to BYC. You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre 
    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. The link to the duck forum is https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks.

    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

    Hi :welcome Kayla

    Glad you could join the flock! It sounds like you have lots of experience there with chickens. For the breeds you are unsure of you could post some pics in the what breed gender section ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    I'm more that sure members there will be able to help you with them.

    Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy your time here on BYC :frow
