    Hi, I'm Mindi. In all I've had 5 hens and a roo but now I've got an Ameraucana and a Jersey Giant, they are a year this month. Last week my sister brought two more birds to add to my flock, DUCKS. I believe they are American pekins, maybe a few weeks old. I know it's early to tell but due to their body language and whatnot I'm beginning to think one might be male, and one female. I'm new to being a duck mom so any information you have for me would be great! Thanks.

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

    As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.

    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.

    If you would like to share more pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
