    Hi, my name is Aleks and my husband (George) and I traded urban lives in Toronto for a far more laid back rural lifestyle in Chelsea, Quebec a couple years back. We’re slowly growing our garden and knowledge of self-sustaining lifestyle and have had ducks on our ‘radar’ for a while now. Finally decided there is no time like the present and so we added four ducklings to our household, which also includes two Aussies and a cat. I am a graphic designer and I have a business I’m fortunate to be able to run from home :) while my husband commutes to work in the city. We’ve been doing a lot of reading on the forum to get acquainted with raising ducks or chickens and now that we have some of our own, joining just made sense!

    Hello designbyaleks.
    Welcome to BYC.
    That self sustaining live gets to be pretty much full time when it gets rolling.
