    Hi Everyone [​IMG]

    I'm from the Sunshine Coast of Essex in the UK

    I have kept hens all my life.

    I have this year hatched for the first time ever Ducklings & Quail so far from an incubator, what I have learnt very quickly is that humidity is crucial.

    I successfully hatched 4 ducklings ~ 2 Runners & 2 Magpies, I also hatched 8 Japanese Quail [​IMG]

    I have just purchased 6 Guinea Fowl ~ watch this space [​IMG]

    We are in the process of converting our garden over to the new animals, my Hubby calls it the " Farm Yard " Area :)

    In there we have; The Pygmy Goats, The Hens, The Ducks, The Quail, The Guinea Fowl & The Geese.

    This area covers approx 60' x 30', it will incorporate a 2 tier pond for the ducks & geese.

    Just behind it is the orchard which has our Bee Hives in it.

    Next year I shall be hatching several different types of hens to build my existing stock up, I have capacity for 30 hens and at present have 11 [ due to rescuing a few, who were unwanted ].

    I hope to hatch these too from my incubator [​IMG]

    I have found this site already so helpful and informative ~ Thank you so much for all the useful information [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chook person and don't know much about your other poultry (although I've had a few ducks), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. If have any questions regarding your flock, you can post on our duck (https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks), quail (https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/48/quail), guinea (https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/45/guinea-fowl), and geese (https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/47/geese) sections and I'm sure that you'll get lots of replies. Good luck with your flock.
    Cheers.
