    We got 3 full grown Cayugas (a drake and 2 hens) a couple months ago. Then shortly after that somebody was giving away ducklings and we picked up 6 muscovies. We live in southern California and are very excited to have these fun pets and hopefully eggs soon. For now we are trying to figure out how to properly set up housing and take care of our birds.

    Thank you I will look at those. Right now my ducklings are getting bigger and I am trying to figure out a new housing configuration. I ordered some electric poultry fencing and am thinking of putting them all the way in the back of my property. I need to build them a new house I guess as well. I think the Cayugas will be happy to have their enclosure all to themselves again.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. Definitely post on our duck link that mymilliefleur left with you and take advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your ducks.
