    I'm new to chicken raising.
    I have 9 chickens and 2 ducks all 17 weeks old. [​IMG]
    There's 4 Barred Rocks, 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Brown Leghorns and 1 Buff Orpington. I don't know what the ducks are. When we went to the feed store someone had stolen all the signs identifying the chicks. I was just hoping I got all girls. [​IMG]

    :frow Hi, and welcome to BYC!!

    Looks like your ducks are a female mallard and a black Swedish, but that's just a quick guess by the pic :)

    If you could post larger photos to the "Duck thread," I'm sure someone would be able to ID for you.

    Thank you! I think one of the brown leghorns is a boy because he's so much skinnier and his comb is bigger then the rest.
