    Hello there! April here. Glad to be a member of BYC. I do not currently have any chickens, the city I am in won't allow it, but I do have ducks. 4 of them. We have 2 pekins and 2 mallards. We also have 2 cats, 2 dogs, 2 rabbits, a rat, a snake, and a turtle. Happy family of 13! We recently purchased a home where I am able to raise my animals and put in a garden so we are trying to homestead as much as possible. Excited to learn all about raising my feathered friends!

    Welcome to BYC, April! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. You might want to contact our duck experts at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your ducks.

    At least you are able to keep ducks! They are such cutie pies and I just love the quacking!

    Maybe they allow ducks because they don't crow?

    Thanks for the welcome! I'm not sure why chickens were specifically outlawed? I adore my ducks, ADORE them. They are hilarious and nothing makes me happier than calling my babies and they come running, quacking all the way! Not to mention I have at least one egg every day so that helps.
