    I'm an old hippy that never got over it. Still living close to the earth on a mountain in Colorado, in a small cabin with hubby, three dogs, a cat, wood for heating and cooking, composting toilet, running water because we run and get it, solar electricity, off the grid. I have 30 goats, 11 chickens, and have just bought 26 ducks. I have 4 Peking, 3 Rouen, and the rest khaki Campbell.

    I don't know anything about raising ducks and so have joined this forum to figure out what I'm doing.

    Hello Snow,

    I moved to FoCo 4 years ago & really want to get back to nature again, but live in an apartment. Sounds like you pretty much have a handle on everything so far. But if you ever want someone to brainstorm with or throw ideas at I would love to help out. I wouldn't mind getting more info from you as well.

    Cheryl ~
