    Hello all, my name is Nik and I'm a new chicken owner. I currently have six one-week-old Rhode Island Red hens, as well as four ducks that are a few months old. I'm unsure of the breed of the ducks. I also plan to get quail in the near future. In addition to our birds my wife and I also have a year- old husky/lab mix named tucker, and he is a ball of energy, but enjoys talking to the ducks. I actually came across this website while doing research on what breed of ducks I have. Perhaps someone knows what they are, I have attached a picture.
