Are you sure they are extinct here?  Kevin Porter has been importing a bunch of turkeys thought to be extinct in the USA.

Composting is good for the environment..
Composting Geese is better for the environment
Composting ducks is best for the environment.
Start your composted Duck pile today,

Eggs can sit (at room temperature) for up to 2 weeks. It's good to collect a bunch and then put them in the incubator all at once so that they hatch at the same time.

17+ pigeons, about 20 coturnix quail, 10 chickens and 2 angora rabbits
