Newbie in Orillia Ontario

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi Everyone! Shaun here from Orillia Ontario. I don't have chickens just yet, but I'll be getting a small mixed flock in February. In the meantime, I'll be setting up my paddocks, learning all I can, and collecting all the bits and bobs I'll need to provide for my new feathered friends! I'm also a novice beekeeper and a student of permaculture (and a graphic designer by profession).

Welcome! this is a great site full of helpful people. When you get a chance check out the learning center, it is full of good information.

Based on availability, it looks like I'll be starting with Silver-laced Wyandotte, Cream Legbar, and probably a Maran, and then a few others maybe olive egger, Ameraucana, and/or RIR depending on who's laying in the next few weeks. I have a line on white chanteclers too, but I haven't decided if I'll include them in my flock. I have to keep my numbers low to start, since I just have one of those tiny commercial coop-in-a-box things from TSC until I can build something roomier. No roosters for now, as I'm concerned about the noise since my one neighbor's house is very close.

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

Hi Shaun,   welcome to Backyard chickens.   You may also want to post on the  "Canadians, check-in-here ," thread for answers to your duck specific questions.  You may find you have poultry neighbors near you.
