Hello, I am new to these forums. I grew up with ducks, but have not had any in a while. I am looking to introduce something back into my yard though. I have recently moved, and now is my perfect opportunity to start a flock of something over again. I was initially thinking ducks again, because I have dealt with them in the past... but then I thought I'd go with guineas for tick control... there appears to be a lot of ticks here, and they'd be good... but other than ticks I have no real interest in guineas. Now I'm thinking maybe just chickens. Anyway, in short, I have joined here to do research to help me make my choice since I would be a first time owner of chickens or guineas! So far just from browsing I have learned a lot!
