    Not sure where to start, so I guess i'll start by saying what i have... My flock consists of mosty mutt chickens, quacking ducks, mostly mutts, black and chocolate Muscovy ducks, guinea fowl, three geese, pigeons, one dove, and my *beloved* peafowl and turkeys. I like all of my birds, but it's the peafowl and turkeys that I'm especially fond of.

    That's all for now, but I'll see if I can find some pictures of the various birds here.

    Here is a recent video of my three of my turkeys. The two White ones are Royal Palms, the brown one is an Eastern Wild.

    Was thinking... And remembered that my first feathered pet was a gray goose. Gosh, that must have been back in the early 70's. Next ones I remember were Muscovy ducks. Imagine my surprise when they started growing caruncles. Until then, the only ducks I knew about were quaking ducks. I seem to remember that they all hissed, so I guess I had all drakes, lol.
