    I've probably just about run this to it's death, but as a good number of you may know I raise and breed D'Uccles. Or, at least I have been trying so very hard.
    I bought my first trio almost 4 years ago (4/15/15). One female died for unknown reasons. The male had a heart attack. I got two new chicks. They ended up being a pair. The female died at 4 months. That left me with 1 male and 1 female. To my absolute despair, a skunk killed them last winter. In one final hail mary I had a young pair growing up, Tunisia and Kibo, whom the community named and watched grow. Today, at 6 months and 1 day old, my paycheck came almost 4 years after my compete investment.

    It was worth every day.
