    I've got five ISAF brown pullets about twelve weeks old, down from six after one died suddenly on Easter. My coop is mostly complete and I'm thinking about adding a half dozen pekin duckings to butcher. Any advice would be appreciated. [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] That is a nice looking coop! If you look in the Learning Centre link above, there are some duck raising articles under the "Other Poultry" section in there. Good luck with your venture!
