    Hello my name is Kymarose,

    I live in Oregon. The Willamette Valley of Oregon. I am new to this forum, but not new to poultry. We live on 2.5 acres and I have a little hobby of chickens, ducks and geese. Nothing more than a hobby... but love my birds like crazy. They bring so much relaxation and joy/fun to me. I have runners ducks, bantam chickens, a pair of China geese and now Muscovies ducks.

    I look forward to being a part of this group... and look forward to your some suggestions.

    Hello :frow and Welcome to BYC! Sorry about the ducks you have lost. They are sure attracted to water. You might try posting in the BYC Ducks forum for more duck-specific help https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks and dealing with the broody duck.

    Welcome to BYC!

    My father-in-law always pinioned his geese to keep them at home. I think this is really about the only thing you can do to prevent them from flying off.

    Thank you all for your warm welcome notes. I may not post very ofter, but I will be reading, learning what I can about caring for Muscovies. This is a good forum.

    Thank you again for welcoming me here.
