    Hello everyone!! I am so excited to be a part of this group. During my research I have found most of my answers her. Right now we have 3 ducklings and are waiting for our local feed store in Charles Town WV gets in the breeds we are looking for. My daughter, son and myself can not wait to start construction on our coop and collecting fresh eggs in the near future. Thanks again for all the information and I look forward to learning so much more.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us!

    If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things duck.

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (just type your state in the search box). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC,

    All the best

    Welcome to BYC - I'm not really sure on how you plan to hatch an egg without the basic components (i.e. fertile eggs). I agree that incubators are expensive, but you can build your own - just type "DIY incubators" in the search box and i am sure you will get the information you need.

    Cheers

    Are you looking to get more ducks or are you getting chicks too? Either way, they're both great and grow fast so better get that construction going! Don't forget to take lots of pictures (of both the birds and the build)...those are always fun to look back on.

    Thanks for joining us!
