    A new member here. My sister is coming from Iowa bringing me 3 Kaki Campbell Ducks and 6 Chickens at Christmas. So I am getting to know what I need to know in order to have fun and get fresh eggs. How to build housing and all the education to help me and my birds.

    Location: New Caney Texas

    We are a State Certified Commercial Goat Dairy producing cheese.

    We do not plan to go commercial with the birds, just for our own farm consumption of eggs.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. My wife and I were both raised in the great state of Texas. I'm a chicken person and don't know a lot about ducks (although I've had a few), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. If you need to, you can get in touch with our duck experts at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of chickens is your sister bringing?

    Will she be driving down with them or flying? I imagine Texas winters are nothing like those in the Midwest. I can picture them all wearing scarves and snow shoes. OMG I said that awful word s - n - o - w [​IMG].

    She is driving them down. I know the ducks are Khaki Campbell. I do not know what chickens she has selected for me.
    She mentioned Americanas - sorry if I spelled it wrong. The other she mentioned but I am not sure if I have it correct.

    3 ducks
    3 Americanas
    3 Duches (I think)

    We will see as she is picking them out. She has 43 chickens and several ducks of her own.

    I will know by Christmas so in the meantime I am checking out housing options. I thought many were so cute!
