    Just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself.
    My name is Chelsea and I live on the coast in NC. We have a small backyard pen and coop. We currently have 2 Isa Brown hens, 2 Peking ducks (Drake's), and just acquired 2 So Barred Rock Pullets. All are about 5-6 months old. We LOVE having our chickens, but our Princess Penelope (one of the Isa Brown) is our favorite. She has so much personality! Very friendly!!! She just started laying this week. I was so proud of her! Hoping to still get silkies and not sure what else. Really want a KW gypsy, but I will be working towards that. Hope you all have a great week and I look forward to chatting with you!

    Nice to meet you Chelsea.

    I would be remiss if I didn't mentioned that your 2 drakes, without mates(?) are likely to try and breed chicken hens. Duck anatomy is very different than that of chickens. A drake can seriously injure of kill a chicken hen, trying to mate her.
