    Hey y’all, I joined yesterday and got down to asking some reading/questions but forgot to introduce myself!

    My name is Aly and I live in the greater New Orleans area.
    I’m new to “backyard animals” in general and just got my first two ducklings (a Pekin and maybe runner or blue Swedish?) The store wasn’t exactly sure on the second duck. Of course this happened rather impulsively since I was just going to look at supplies for goats since I am scheduled to be welcoming two baby Nigerian dwarves into the family in December! What can I say? I love animals. So I found BYC as I began to google and search for the best care info for my new ducklings and soon to be buddies. Haha

    Some of my other hobbies are DIY projects, fishing, grilling, and pretty much being outside!

    :)

    Hi Aly
    Welcome. Just joined too. Love the outdoors as well - though I think we have less space here in suburban England.

    :welcome Welcome to BYC! :frow

    Hoping that you find our fantastic forum to be overflowing with all the poultry info you could ever be in need of- and for sure you'll make a few lasting acquaintances along the way. :D It's pretty impossible not to pick up a few like-minded friends 'round these parts. ;)
