    Hi everyone my name is Lizz. Ive googled so many questions about my ducks and always found answers that lead me to them is site. So I figured I should finally join. Im a new duck owner to now unfortunatly onky one khaki duck her mate got taken by a fox. But we are definetly looking forward to get to her a mate very soon and being able to share our experiance with everyone here and hear other stories and meet some new duck and chicken lovers such as ourselves. Im so happy to be a part of this group and cant wait to start learning more and more and getting some helpful tips from people. Thanks for taking the time to read and if anyone has any tips for us please share anything would be great to Hear. One question already are we able to get any type of drake for our girl so that maybe next spring we can get some little ones? Or do they have to be of the same breed duck? Ive found a call duck and was gonna get him but wanna make sure they could have some healthy little ducklings in the spring before we go pick him up. Thanks again. And looking for at to hear in from everyone :)

    Welcome to BYC, Lizz! Glad you decided to join our flock. Sorry you lost one of your ducks to a fox. It is always sad to lose one of our flock and I hope you can get her a new mate soon. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I hav to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. If you have any questions regarding your ducks, just post them on our duck section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks, and I'm sure you'll get lots of replies. Good luck in getting another duck.
