    Can I keep rosy red minnows in a 5.5 gallon tank?

    It could technically be done but it's not ideal. They are schooling fish so it's recommended to keep them in groups of 5+. You'd want at least a 10 gallon for that.

    What do you guys think of ordering chickens and ducks at purely poultry?

    Are you just wanting pets/egg layers or breeder birds?

    Is this drake behavior?

    If the voice is raspy then he's mostly likely a drake. You will need to separate him from the chickens if he's trying to breed them. Their reproductive systems are very different and a drake can fatally injure a hen trying to mount her.

    Selling eggs.

    10 dollars a dozen sounds normal for my area when it comes to duck eggs now. Please make sure to look into your city's regulations before selling any eggs. Some areas are much more strict with their rules when it comes to selling them.

    Dogloo for geese

    My goose used one while broody but I'm not sure that would honestly work for long term. Especially for a goose as large as a Toulouse.

    Are mandarin ducks cold hardy

    Will the barn be free of any drafts? The biggest concern for them would be frostbite on their feet. This should be avoidable with open water and plenty of dry bedding.

    Duck ate dead leave lily leaves

    Do you know what species of lily is was? Most likely he did not ingest enough to be harmful. I would just make sure he has access to plenty of water and grit.

    Duck egg reactions

    I believe the protein enzymes are different in each species. Your digestive system might have trouble breaking them down. This isn't a completely unusual reaction to them. I have a few family members who aren't able to eat duck eggs but are perfectly fine with chicken eggs.

    What Should Be A Part of My Urban Homestead

    Ducks are lovely animals but are extremely messy. If you're planning on free ranging everyone then Drakes can be a problem with hens.

    Khaki Campbells / 3 ganging up on 1

    It sounds like they might be trying to restablish their pecking order. I would separate the injured male while he recovers. It is possible for them to kill him but it usually doesn't end up going that far.

    Fish Thread for posting Pictures of our fish, tanks, ponds, and Q & A

    It really is going to depend on what you plan on stocking the tank with. A fish only tank will require a different set up than if you were planning on building a reef set up. I wouldn't say it's really much harder, especially if you're going for a fish only tank or even a FOWLR.

    "Healthy" can be a subjective term. However, chicken eggs have much less cholesterol and fat when compared to turkey eggs.
