Hello! I just started the journey of being a duck mom. We wanted to raise chickens, but I was a little scared. When I was a kid my family raised a few Pekins, and I felt more comfortable tackling ducks at the moment. We plan on giving chickens a try later, but for now we will stick to ducks. We brought our babies home last week (Buddha and Cheddar) and like the nervous mama I am I turned to Google multiple times a day when questions arose. Every question I had led me to this website, and the community seems so caring and knowledgeable. I am over the moon in love with my ducklings (might have some to do with my pregnancy hormones right now) and it seems that there are many people who share the same love for their feathered babies here. I have found the information here to be so wonderful and I am excited to join this community.
