    Hi all, as you can see, I'm new to the BYC community! I have had ducks for about 1 1/2 years, and chickens, a year.
    Ducks:
    Peter (Black-Pied Muscovy Drake), Stuart (White Muscovy Hen), Bobby (White Muscovy Hen), and Truffles (Brown Muscovy Hen). These four I got from a friend of mine. They produced four ducklings last spring: Squish (Black Muscovy Drake), Markus (White Muscovy Drake), Quasimodo (Black-Pied Muscovy Hen), and Checkers (Black-Pied Muscovy hen). Early November, Quasimodo died due to his leg problem, and some time around February Squish and Markus died for an unknown reason. I also got three eggs that spring from a fellow livestock buddy. They were Peeper(Black Swedish/Pekin Hen), Jace(Black Swedish and Pekin Hen), and Dave (Black Swedish/Pekin Drake). Peeper, my favorite hen, was drowned by Truffles when she was only a few weeks old.
    Chickens:
    Red Star Hens: Buttercup, Freckles, Speckles, Henrietta, Big Barbara, and Reefer. I got Henrietta, Big Barbara, and Reefer about 6 months after the first batch of ducks, and the other three just a month ago.
    The same livestock friend that gave us the Black Swedish/Pekin Ducks just gave us three more chickens. There is a Black Star named Big Mama, A leghorn/??? named Sour Cream, and a Buff Orpington named Alejandro Santiago Quarequez Ramirez III(AKA Tiger Banana).
