    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Beth and I am from Pennsylvania. This past April I added 5 Muscovies and 2 Khaki Campbell's to our family. They are such a treasure! I never thought they would be so much fun. We live on a small farmette with 7 acres and a stream. My favorite part of each day is letting the ducks out of the barn in the morning and watching them stretch their wings and fly to the creek; well, the Khaki's run as fast as they can. We just got our first egg this week! With winter coming I am looking forward to getting a lot of information on how to keep the ducks happy in the cold weather.

    My husband now calls me The Crazy Duck Lady. Probably because I am out there all the time with the ducks. I have discovered that if you don't want to get anything else done, get some ducks! LOL.

    Looking forward to chatting with some of you.

    Have a great day.

    Beth
