    Hi everyone

    I've been lurking around for a while reading some interesting posts before signing up! I am hopefully getting a little duck in a few weeks time so am looking for some advice on space required, best feed and generally any tips etc :)

    Thanks all!

    Hi and welcome to BYC. I agree that having a duck-mate is important. They are social animals.

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/category/learning-center.11/ 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 - http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread#post_3239224

    All the best
