No since in serving up duck and goose to any of the many predators by neglecting to provide safe over night housing. We have live stock guard dogs (2 great Pyreneese) and we still lock up the birds. Hubbies mandarins and wood ducks stay in their flight pen 24/7, the guinea and Muscovy will be moving to open air pens this summer. I figure the dogs are great, but cant be everywhere all of the time, so to lessen the work load all the domestic ducks and all of the geese get locked up. Housing makes testing day easier too, we can move from house to house and then when done we can open the yard gates to turn everyone loose. Fall Sebbies most likely won't be listed here on BYC, but on the Sebastopol forum and our website.
Julie those birds are HUGE!
I have a set of leghorn eggs in the bator just because I wanted to see bigger chickens. Those you are looking at though look to be even bigger than the foghorn eggs.
Marty, enjoy those ear rings!
Kevin, hurry up with the zoo already.
I had wallabies years ago, loved those little boogers.
Windy out this morning, but NO RAIN! Deby needs to start moving though because a stalled weak storm is worse than a moving low grade hurricane. Flooding all over, watching for word from others on if they need help or to move birds. Our rear pasture is completely under water again, the front has a large "ponding area" in it too. Made for mad chickens and in heaven ducks and geese. Grass is growing so fast now even the large number of geese we have can keep up. Mowed the entire rear yard yesterday between waves of rain. The front needs trimming, but standing water will prevent that for now.[/quote
Where is the Sebastopol forum? I want to make sure I am there. Thanks!
