    Hi There..

    My name is Melissa - I have 5 chickens and 14 adults ducks with 5 duck babies doing great and 2 duck babies who aren't doing so well and I feel like I need advice so I looked around and found this forum! I will post on that in another thread.

    I love my chickens and ducks - they provide alot of entertainment at our little mini homestead in the center of town (10 acres surrounded by all suburbs- yikes!) in Colorado.

    We have RIR chickens that rule the roost around here and some Khaki - Call cross ducks that try to stay out of the way of the chickens! Very grateful to find a place to get information about my babies!
