Hello all, Just thought I'd take a moment to introduce myself. I'm in the US enjoying another warm fall day. My flock consists of my hubby, 3 cats, 4 bantum hens, 3 black hens, 3 Pekin ducks, 1 Saxony drake, 1 Saxony duck, 2 female Chinese geese. The waterfowl are in a large area outside my window where I have the joy of watching them all day long. I'm disabled but ambulatory so taking care of them is very therapeutic. I currently have a goose that is ill and have spent the last 4 days researching. Seems that I have found most (almost all really) of the helpful information here on BYC. I thought it would be wise to join the forum since I do have questions I'm not finding answers for and will likely have more. I hope to also provide information and answers to questions to others as I'm not new to raising animals/livestock but I have recently discovered that I obviously have not seen everything . I'll post my questions on the appropriate site when I have a moment of extra time. Until then I need to get back to tending to poor Diamond (name of the sick goose). Just want to also thank EVERYONE for putting together this vast source of avian information and humor.
