UGGH! Never saw this post again! Glad it was brought back up!
We just chose to revamp all the birds. Now we have orps. for our standard chickens, but plan to add some more standard egg laying breeds. TRUE amerauacanas (that'll take a while finding them!), black australorps and maybe something else. Not sure what... Then we've got peafowl in three colors, a few muscovie ducks, bantam cochins, turkeys in two colors, ringneck pheasants and guineas (boy do we have guineas!!).
We also stuck our fingers in the sheep/lamb/beef calves/rabbit pot to make meat for the house. Well, ok, we won't eat the sheep... They are just cute and sweet and I'm sure whomever gets them will enjoy them on THEIR dinner plates. LOL!!
How are you doing???? How are all those geese? Did you ever find your ...swan eggs.... was it?
Yes, DH is still in the Navy. He's reenlisting as a matter of fact on the 31st of this month for his last five years of service! I can't believe you remembered!
Although I don't have any geese right now, I do have two goose eggs in the bator right now! I got them from Birdnutz along with a whole mess of her duck eggs and do you know, EVERY single egg at least started to grow? Talk about awesome!!
Well, anyway, I'm glad to see you on here with your goose eggs again. Yours were GREAT on fertility last year!
