In April my husband bought two ducklings and I thought It was the best gift ever, a month later his friends brings us two chickens(don't know the breed, they are white) and I quickly learned that I was wrong about the ducks. I simply fell in love with my 2 little chicks(Camilla, after Gonzo's lady hen, and Clarence, I was reading Hannibal at the time) I can't explain how crazy I am about my chicks and of course set out to learn everything I need to know about them. I would never buy ducks again, I love the 2 I have and my kids adore them, but I will never get more. As for the chickens, well I'm already reading about what I need to do in order to introduce new chicks to our family even though I'm waiting until next spring to get more. I have a feeling I'll be spending plenty of time here, learning something new everyday.
