    Hey everyone,

    I recently (within the last 6 months) got into chickens and ducks. Currently, I have 2 Pekin hens and 2 Blue Swedish ducks (gender unknown). I also have 1 Barred Rock, 1 RIR, 1 Speckled Sussex and 1 Black Sex Link.

    I am excited to have found this forum and hope to learn a lot as I raise and expand my flock!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. You have a nice mix of breeds. Black Sex Links are my personal favorites as they are very friendly and hardy laying machines. You should get loads of eggs from that girl. :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is loads of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
