Hello! I own a large variety of geese,ducks,chickens and usually turkey's as well.I love to hatch,rear,care for and love my birds!I currently have 8 chickens,2 ducks and 2 geese.I have read many books on care and raising of these birds and would love answering any questions I will do my best!
So far I have:
A rooster named Heliotrope named after the flower of October which is a sizzle,polish,1/2 wyandotte and unknown mix along with his brother Dello named after imagination.
Then their mother Wilda meaning the untamed one in another language I can't remember she is a sizzle,polish,unknown mix.

I feed them all a mix of 21% protein game bird crumble and scratch.
I get very few chicken eggs about 0-2 a day and every once in awhile I'll get a tiny egg like the one in this picture it was only the size of a quarter!
I have a few small waterers for drinking and one big trough for bathing and all are cleaned every day.
