    Looking forward to getting to know folks and learning and sharing as much as possible! :)
    My family had chickens when I was little, and we had ONE duck when I was 9 years old that was my pet for 2 years before my parents gave her away (still not forgiven). Going on 9 days ago I got some little Peking darlings! I actually tried to make an account and get on here while things were being moved around lol! Glad to finally be on here and hope to meet some people that also adore ducks! I'm also wanting to raise chickens, geese, guinees and more down the road but I want to be prepared and know what to watch out for with the ducks before moving on to a new bird species, because oh my I thought I had prepared myself enough but there's so much you don't know to even consider until after you already have them! Excited to meet some other sweet birdy lovers and share pictures if there is a way to do that :D

    Buffalo gnats sound yummy - just kidding, regular size gnats are disgusting. I would think ducks might like to eat them.
