    Hey everyone,
    So I recently inherited some chickens and ducks. I've never owned either before, so I'm pretty much in the dark about almost everything. I was thrilled to find a site devoted to them and community. I can't wait to learn all about my new feathered children and hopefully make some friends in the process!
