    Hello!

    I am a new duckling mama who is excited to get information and chat with people about raising ducks. I hatched eggs in my Kindergarten classroom and opted to take home 3 of the 11 ducklings that hatched. I am not yet sure what kind they are, but I think 2 are Pekin and 1 is Rouen.

    My husband and I also raise chickens for eggs....we currently have 20 - a mix between Rhode Island Reds, Speckled Plymouth and Silkies. We also raise hogs for meat - this is our first year and we have 5 (though 4 are for other people).

    We have a four year old son who loves animals and actively helps us with them. Along with one 120 pound dog and 2 cats, we are a busy household! We live on 26 acres in a rural town in NY. Who knows what we might decide to get in to next!
