Hi everyone! I am getting ready to start raising some chicks and ducks for meat/eggs and fun companionship sometime next summer, or late spring. I am in Florida, Lakeland area. Wondering what are the best birds by parameters: 1. Healthy, resistant to disease 2. Not too rumbunctious 3. Can survive the heat 4. Not too noisy (We are only on an acre lot) 5. Good producers Bonus: can kick the heck out of the cat (we have one who thinks he is a hunter) Plus, hubby thinks he can butcher chickens himself and learn to be a homesteader. He he he... We'll see. Otherwise I'll end up with a pile of chickens and ducks and will have to sell eggs on the side of the road. Thanks!
