Hi! I'm brand new to owning poultry. Had never touched a live bird until a couple weeks ago when I purchased my first chicks. What was supposed to be a few chicks to keep our hatching ducks company ended up being 6 chicks and 11 more in the incubator. All of my 5 duck eggs hatched about a week ago (yay!) and we're enjoying our welsh harlequin ducklings. Buff orpington and barred rock pullets are my chicks with bielefelders hatching in about a week.
