My Ducks, Geese, and Pigeons!

  1. GoldenFlight
    My brother @NathanZee and I first decided to get some birds in the spring of 2015. We started by ordering 2 African Geese, 3 Mallards, 3 Buffs, 3 fawn and white runners, and 3 Khaki Campbell ducks. On June 17 we spent our whole day watching and falling in love with all those little fuzz balls. Since then we have added pigeons and bunnies to our little farm. Here are some pictures of them, enjoy.

    Nope, we bought him from a hatchery in California.... I hope that works out for you! :) Birdz are the best!

    Nice birds! Howard looks like the wild Mottled ducks we have in Florida. Did you hatch him or did he just fly in and join the party? I only have button quail now, but I hope someday I will be able to get a house with a big enough yard to have a decent sized garden and hatch a few birds. If any other birds want to fly in and become part of the flock, that would be fine too!

    They actually aren't free range, we just always let them out of their pen when we are outside. Well, I love the pigeons because they are just so different from the other birds and are very fun to watch interact with each other. Reuben is a pigeon also and in the picture he is feeding his son.

    Beautiful. Simply beautiful. All of it. Just beautiful. Actually almost brought tears to my eyes.
    Thank you and bless you

    wow what a great video and wonderful music. what a long walk.!!
    You look to have lots of property for them to RUN... I luv seeing poultry free ranging instead of "cooped up" which is so cruel to me... they are adorable and look to have a happy life. But I dont understand why anyone wants pigeons... But to each his own. thanks for sharing and taking good care of those lucky creatures of God.
    what type of bird is Reuben ? and with "his" baby ? thank you for sharing
