    Hi, my name is Jessica and we bought a farmhouse in upstate NY about a year ago and have now decided to start the farm! We got 6 little ducklings and 2 chicks on Sunday, they are so adorable. Only a couple days old! I have them in a brooding area in our dinning room (which we don't really eat in) and they seem to be very happy with it. When we went to pick them up we only planned on getting ducklings, but they was one little dark brown and tan Cochin chick left so I had to get him... of coarse we couldn't have just one chicken so we ended up with two! I'm married to a former Marine and have a 2 1/2 year old son, we also own 3 dogs, a cat, and a turtle! [​IMG] I'm a huge animals person! In the future we plan on getting some horses as well. Can't wait to meet everyone, this forum has been so helpful so far!
