If anyone wants "just goats" & doesn't care what breed then I can pick some up at the next auction. They will have to be young or small to fit in my car for the trip home but I could swing probably 4-5 in 1 trip as long as they will fit in my cages or on kids' laps.
I only need them for "forage". They're supposed to be keeping down my multiflora rose, etc. I have 3 Boer mix wethers.
near Honesdale (up past Scranton).
I'll let you know the next time I go & you can tell me how much to spend & how many you want. Toss me in a bit extra for gas & you can pick them up here or we can meet somewhere.
I have a couple questions for you duck people out there. Although I am not allowed by the wife to get a goat, she is ok with cute little duckies. So, with that said, I don't know anything about ducks! I have a small coy fish pond but that's it for water. It's about 10' x 4' and kidney shaped. Is that good enough? Can I just build a small coop for them with access to the pond? The pond freezes over in the winter, do they need access to "swimming" water in the winter? If I am correct, they eat the same food as chickens but do they need anything else? How quickly do they grow? Do they grow at the same pace as chickens? When will they start to lay eggs? What else should I know about raising ducks?
