    Hello y'all. Just joined the flock today but have been using this site since I started back up raising birds about 3yrs ago. I use have ducks when I was in high school so I had a bit of knowledge already but this site has been amazing. It seamed every time I "googled" a question I ended up here for the answer in the I just started coming straight here. Lol So hi! I have ducks and chickens now. I built my own incubator and have successfully hatch 1 chicken and 3 ducks. Looking forward to talking with others about all the fun these fowl can be! B-)

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you joined the flock! If you have any questions feel free to ask us. What kind of chickens and ducks do you have? My favorite chicken is the Black Australorp and my favorite duck is the Indian Runner. Also I raise peafowl.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. You may want to join your state thread - I believe California has a few by area. You could put "California threads," in the search box, and it should pop up with those you can pick from or subscribe to all
