    Hi everyone! To be honest I joined mostly to ask questions about ducks, because I saw you have a section for that!

    That's great! I'm getting a couple of those plus some other breeds in April. Ducks look like a lot of fun. I'll probably see you around the duck forum!

    Yeah, I like them a lot more then chickens for many reasons, but last year I tried to raise them and severely failed (they all ended up dying in the end) so now I'm coming here, getting some advice and reading up... and I'm finding that you have to take care of them completely different from chickens which I didn't do last time.

    There are some really helpful, experienced duck people over on that forum (of course there are on the chicken forums too, lol). This will be my first time trying to raise ducks so I plan on using their experiences to help get over the learning curve. I hope this next time round goes much better for you.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but definitely post on our Duck section and take advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
