Sounds great! Once my girls get going I will post for sure. It just depends on location also and who is closest! They are a 35 day hatch. here is a good read on the breed focus
Very well put together by @sumi
Reuby-Roo What a great gentleman.
If anyone needs to rehome roosters this year, for $5 I'll grant them a yard to free range in and live a great life. The $5 would cover a bit of their food. And they could help me with the remainder of the composting that needs to be done here.
Would you be willing to hold on to a muscovy drake for that?
Come spring, I'll let him free range in the back yard. But I won't be out there trying to catch him or any of the others to lock in a coop at night. It really would be free ranging and eating the food the goats dropped. Goats are messy eaters. I'd use the $5 to get some food for the free rangers but not a ton clearly. But my yard is full of things chickens like to eat, lots of worms and other bugs too.
One thought for you also, if you kept your buck in a separate area, or even a fenced area, he could help act as a predator deterrent! My hawk problems have dropped to zero with most of my flocks in with my livestock. Its working out very well.
