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