  1. It is way cheaper and more astetic to trim their flight wings with scissors. Trim about 2-3 inches off their expanded wings. My my7 year old does this. Then they wont leave the run.

  2. You can mix ceyenne pepper in their feed for a couple days....might cause an egg. Heard it works.

  3. probably about half will be roos so you would conceovably keep themm in your freezer and open up the coop space a little.

    I have 3 ducks, 2 peking (male and female) and 1 female runner, that are 8 months old. I'd love to rehome them to a nice place with a pond. I have all chickens and they tend to be messier in the coop than I'd like. Egg production is down a tad bit. I'm only getting about 3 eggs a week now.

    Sure... I'm easy when it comes to breeds.

    Easy peasy to make your own. I have multiple casks of all sorts of fermented stuff around here. I'd love to find someone who wants a kombucha mama or some kefir grains. They are multiplying like crazy lately. I love red wine vinegar and I swear, it truly is the best stuff I've ever gotten anywhere. It makes divine dressing and i hate to admit that sometimes, I'll take some cheese curd and add the red wine vinegar and just let it ferment for a day. So very yummy. :) You guys want cultures... man, do i have cultures. :)

    and the assortments that I'd want to try in both bantam and big girls. I suspect we'll easily have the minimum.

    Welcome!! I was starting to feel lonely with so many people in Colorado Springs! I'm in Denver. I didn't know you could have chickens in HR, how many are you guys allowed?

    I have 1 female pekin duck who lost her mate a few months ago. She loves her kiddie pool. You are welcome to have her.
    Im not sure what else to do with her short of orange duck since I couldnt find a male for her.

    would she be OK alone until I got others? Correct me if I am wrong but don't they mate for life? Maybe another female would suffice?
