I raise turkeys, guinea fowl, ducks, geese and a fair few hens of different varities,,,My little orange Cochin is a great great great grandmum of many beautiful coloured mixtures...although for some reason most turn out black and majority have crests, she is setting again starting today.
My turkeys are a sky blue hen a red hen two white hens and four narragsett hens, my gobblers are 2 white and four bronze wing.
My ducks are many breeds, mostly khaki campbells and muscovy with a few of other breeds all 45 of them, almost forgot my pair of call ducks too.
As for my guinea fowl! well they are pied and violets and purples and am still wating and hoping to get it right with the breeding, with 12 to watch out for is so hard, they are so self minded.
My geese are Pilgrims with an adopted Pomeranian youngster setting for the first time, I bought the gosling at a local show last year and brought it home with reservations, I no sooner put the little one down and my two geese accepted the baby as theirs straight away.
