    Im new to backyard chickens! Bought my first three girls (an Orphanington and two ameraucanas) a year ago and just purchased three Bantams (one who is a Frizzle, which I'm soooo excited about) We also have two ducks!! Any advice is always great appreciated!

    The best advice I can offer you, is to check out the Learning Center (above) . For specific duck information post on the "Duck thread." Above all Welcome to BYC.[​IMG]

    If you haven't already, read up on integration...new birds are not automatically welcomed into an existing flock, it takes time for everyone to adjust.

    Thanks for joining us!
