    Some of you here on BYC know that we only have 1/3 acres, so we had to make a microfarm to best utilize our space.

    This weekend I am buying a chocolate muscovy drake to mate with our two duck hens. That means thats it!! I dont need to buy anymore birds!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This doesnt mean I am cured of chicken maddness, this doesnt mean I cant buy bird I want, this just means the meat management portion of my flock will be done.

    I currently have:

    one rooster
    11 hens
    one bantam roo
    3 bantam hens
    guinea roo and hen
    two chock muscovy hens
    one silkie roo
    two silkie hens
    8 quail

    Ive got three dark cornish bulldog chicks comming next weekend,Gruesome will be surrogate for them in our surrogate pen.

    The new drake will be housed in the old coop with the two duck hens.

    Ive got 8 broodies:
    one buff orp
    one light brahma
    two american games
    one partridge rock
    two silkie hens
    one oeg hen

    So from the broodies,I wont need to use my homemade incubator,nor brooder box. Cut off from electric bill to go au-natural.

    So if I want any more birds the two choices will be:

    golden seabrights
    khaki campbell ducks

    Freedom!!!! Glorious glorious Freedom!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Now onto breeding,hatching,brooding,selling/eating.
