    Hi all! I'm new to this site as well as to duck raising! We recently got 3 ducklings...one for each of our boys. After seeing our cute little ducks, our friends got 3 of their own. However, they were unable to keep them so we took them in. So now we have 6! We know the 3 we inherited are Welsh Harlequinns and we think we have identified our original 3 as 2 Pekins and 1 Rouin.
    We are excited about our new jouney as duck owners and are looking forward to learning So much more on here!

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great that you have joined us. The duck forum will be your go-to place, I'm sure - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks but you'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread#post_3239224


    All the best

    G’Day from down under elsaldr5 [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some good 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 [​IMG]
