    Hey there! I have been doing TONS or research about getting ducks. My husband and I are wanting to get ducks this spring for a few reasons - they seem fun! So cute! Plus the eggs will be nice once they start laying. We have decided Rouens would be a good breed for us. We are thinking one drake and three hens would fit us well as we don't have a ton of room right now. Any suggestions or tips would be very much appreciated since we are brand new to this! Thanks!

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. Definitely post on the duck links that Mountain Peeps has left you with, and take advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your ducks.
