My husband & I (& our boys) had some chickens & ducks many yrs ago in upstate NY. Last Oct we were given an opportunity to build an incubator & hatch ostrich eggs in N.Florida. This spring, as we prepair to send the young ostriches to auction, we've decided to create a flock of SMALL birds that we'll be able to keep. We wanted to give our daughter an experience similar to what her brothers had before she was born. She says she can't wait to hear quacking from DUCKS instead of FROGS.
