    Hello everyone!

    For years I have been wanting ducks, and am finally in the position after rebuilding our home to get some! I will be getting my little ducklings towards the end of the month and am super excited! After hours upon hours of research I am always finding myself coming to threads on BYC and find them extremely helpful. So I decided why not join since I do have some questions and I am sure will in the future of things that I could not find in my searches. Thanks everyone xx. [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC, Lee. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducklings (although I've had a few), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. Definitely post on our Duck section in Other BackYard Poultry under the Forum at the top of the page 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.

    Hi Lee, [​IMG]

    What breed of ducks are you getting? About every 2 weeks there is a breed focus thread and it's interesting to read member's experiences with the various breeds (and see some great pictures). Here's a link to take you to the ones that have been done so far:

    Enjoy your ducklings!
