Welcome from Harrisburg. No ducks for us yet with three small suburban coop

Looking for land, or small farm, then there are a few animals I would like to add. ;-)
What do you have?

Here is the breeder roo. I'm naming him Nicholas because his beard is white and fluffy, like a certain saint . . .
(and he might be delivering "gifts")

Anxious to see what you get!! Put me on a list for these. ;-)

I will. They have a few issues in their care, just like silkie  bantams. I got them because I thought it would be neat if silkies laid blue eggs (and hopefully more of them - our silkies spend about 80% of their life being broody)

You must have local hunters and trappers in your area that would like an invite to your place for a little "target practice". We've had people come ask for permission to hunt foxes and coyotes at night with red lights. Sounds like it would be a challenge, and the hunters I know are always looking for a challenge to talk about with their buddies.

Plenty of hunters around here. I enjoy target practice myself. There are so many patches of woods, Creek bottoms and fields around here, it's an impossible task to eliminate or even control the population.

Just this morning as I same home from work I noticed a hawk nest 100 yards away. Up until a year ago it was closer, but port of the tree fell down, so they rebuilt further away.

Losses are unfortunately part of rural life in farm country.

I hear that.  I've found piles of feathers twice in the last few weeks, oddly... no birds are missing.  I have no idea what happened, but in my head, it goes like this:  'fox grabs bird, bird squawks.  Bella to the rescue!'.  I have no way of knowing for sure, but it sure makes me smile.  My Bella's been pretty sick, some kind of tick born illness.  She's on antibiotics and has a limp.  Poor girl.

Glad Bella is there to the rescue! I hope she feels better here in a couple days. Is it Lyme disease? My mom's dog has it. He rarely has flare ups now bit it was scary at first.
