newbie planning a homestead!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

hi folks!

so sometime next year i'll be buying a home with my partner and our two best friends. our goal is at least two acres, and one of our first project will be setting up for some poultry. the area we are looking at allows up to 10 female ducks or chickens. my preference is ducks, and i'd ideally like to set up a duckponics system or divert their dirty swimming water to our plants. i'm thinking we may want to have both ducks and chickens though, the more i read about them the more they seem to fill different niches on a homestead. i've been around a lot of folks with backyard chickens, but no one with backyard ducks! 

anyway, i've been reading and learning a lot from y'all so far!

Welcome  BYC.  I think you questions would best be posted on the "Duck thread."  I have read about folks diverting the dirty water to  garden plantings.

Hi Drumstrick Diva! 

Thanks. I actually don't have any questions. I've done a ton of research already and have some ideas/plans, but until we actually have a physical space, I can only plan so much! I hope I didn't make it sound like I was trying to ask a question in my introduction, just trying to say hi and let y'all know what my interests were.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
