    Well, when I came to the farm and took over the chicken business from my father. The farm already had around 200 chickens of 25 different breeds kept in breeding pens. I built a large chicken house with 1000 bird capacity, added other poultry species like ducks, guineas, geese and turkey. In 9 years the population did grew but I don't think it's too explosive.
    This is my passion, I am doing what I can do. I am happy that I can realise my dream.

    Ummm, this is what I call duck math.......
    93 ducks + 15 more on the way + 46 duck eggs currently being incubated + more duck eggs that might accidentally start getting incubated! :lau:lau:lau

    My big girls are all nice and silent and sleeping like good little chickies while my little girls (3 days-1 1/2 weeks old) are up scratching and running around being little crazy fuzzballs. Yay for the brooder being in the living room! Maybe they don't like Friends? I mean, there's a duck AND a chicken! ...in some episodes...

    Cackle is in Lebanon, MO. For us it is about a 3 hour drive, I think. Although it is two days before we can pick up at our local post office, I think their journey is shorter than if i order from elsewhere and hopefully less stressful.

    Thank you. It is sad they didn't make it. Many of the breeds I ordered are "out of stock" on their site now, so I am thinking I got the last of them. I didn't notify the hatchery as The first shipment when perfectly and sometimes these things happen. It isn't like they arrived dead.
