New member, trying to decide between chickens and ducks! Very excited to join BKY!
Welcome to BYC! Get both.
It's great to have you with us.
Welcome! I'm new too, have 19 chicks and loving it! I want ducks, but my hunny says no, we will see...haha
Hi and welcome to BYC. I agree - gotta have both

All the best
Greetings from Kansas and ! Pleased you joined us! I currently have chickens, ducks, geese, guineas, and turkeys. Chickens are by far the easiest. I find ducks a little higher maintenance. Here's a section from the Learning Center with articles that discuss what it takes to be a chicken keeper: https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/getting-started-raising-chickens
And some similar articles about the ins and outs of raising quackers: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/256233/ducks-sticky-topics-index
Whatever you decide, best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!!
When faced by indecision - take both. Usually that works for me. Hubby can end up liking the ducks as much as chickens. Usually holding one is all it takes to convert husbands.
G’Day from down under millefiori Welcome!
As you have already received links to some great starting points, I will just wish you all the best.
I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.
If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out
Whichever one you go with, you'll enjoy!
Welcome to BYC! I have chickens and ducks, and I love them both! So, you know....Get both!
