    Hello Fran and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Yes, we all are a bit over the top with our chicken obsession. LOL Once poultry get into your blood, it is hard to get them out!

    I don't keep ducks and can't be of much help to you. You might stop by our Ducks section for more info and help with breeds, there are so many breeds of ducks... https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks

    Make yourself at home here and we do welcome you to our roost! :)

Please do pop by the duck section that TwoCrows left for you and in addition you could ask on your state thread about any members who could maybe point you in the right direction for ducklings.

    Very nice to meet you Fran. If you are thinking of ducks as house pets - you might want to check out the "show us your house ducks," thread.
