    Welcome to BYC and congratulations on the additions to your flock! So glad you've joined us. I've kept chickens and I've kept ducks, but they were at different times so no words of wisdom on keeping them together - but there are tons of folks here who are bound to come along soon enough that can help you with that.

    G’Day from down under littlelisa2412 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Congrats on the new quackers! You might be interested in the Duck Forum: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    I have 4 ducks. Decided to start with adults over ducklings right now. The person I got them from didnt take good care of then sadly. Apparently as a baby one of them got stuck under a food bowl for 4 days. That would be Penelope my pekin hen. She doesnt walk well and sometimes acts neurotic but shes sweet. I got a rouen hen, Whiskey, an ancona drake, Duck William and a muscovy drake, Ryder.
