I am a new member but have been using this website for about a year. This place is PACKED with excellent information on raising and caring for your backyard buddies and some of the most informative members I have found anywhere on the internet.
So...I just wanted to say thanks to every member here for making this a great website.
On our micro farm we have two Nigerian dwarf Goats, six chickens of various breeds, four heritage turkeys(two Black Spanish, one Bourbon Red, and a Narragansett) and two mini Australian spotted Ducks.
Our biggest problem with our backyard buddies has been birds of prey...Hawks and Owls. Someone on this site had mentioned getting a couple of owl decoys to deter raptors and so far its worked like a charm. so, thanks again.
