    My name is Becca and I live in Florida. I just got 6 baby chicks (3 Cornish, 3 long island reds) and 1 duck (will be getting more of each). I am a mom of 5 kids, 3 dogs and a rescued pig. I am looking also to get a turkey, just not sure what kind yet. I love to let the roam and be free. They aren't just my pets they are my babies.

    G’Day from down under Becca :frow Welcome and Congratulations! :clap

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out. There are some down the bottom of the page which are duck specific.

    If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock or other critters, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)
