    Good morning from Arizona. My name is Tina and this past December I moved back to Arizona and live on property with a lot of animals. Most of the animals belong to the owner of the property but she bought me my own Muscovy ducks back in April and I incubated five chickens a few months ago and now have I believe four girls and one rooster. I've always loved animals but I never knew much about chickens and ducks due to not much experience with them. I never thought I would be a chicken lover specifically but I love my five babies and I've grown to love all the other chickens too on the property and my two Muscovy ducks, Duke and Daisy are my babies! Daisy just laid her first egg yesterday and I'm almost done making them a duck Mansion LOL when I first got here there was only two guineas and we thought they were both girls but then we realized there were eggs fertilized. She ended up hiding a clutch off off property and I was able to find them the next street over after they were born and saved them from a hawk that I actually got on video because daddy Guinea was yelling and I was able to follow is noises and find them, put 9 Guinea babies in a Box and brought them back to the chicken coop with Mommy and Daddy following behind me. So I've learned a lot about all kinds of birds and fowl since I've been here. ❤️
