  1. Back on the Farm
    I'm Back On The Farm... again [​IMG] I grew up on a farm and moved away when I went to college. 15 years of marriage and two kids later, we moved back on to the farm. Growing up we never had chickens and ducks - only lots of cows, cats, and dogs. My kids asked if they could have duck and I've always wanted chickens. So here I am - 8 baby chicks in the basement under a heat lamp, waiting on a coop, planning a chicken run, and trying to figure out with the family what type of ducks to get.
    I've got 2 RIR's, 2 Golden Comets, 2 Plymouth Rocks (I don't think they are PR's... they are white - White Rocks???), and 2 Black sex links. The chick with the feather in her mouth - always seems to have a feather in her mouth. [​IMG] Not sure why. Thought she was picking on others, but after watching them, she's not picking on anyone.
    My other family includes my very patient and loving husband, two boys, 3 dogs, 1 cat, 1 rabbit, and a few fish in the aquarium... it is getting to be a regular zoo around here. [​IMG]
