Still chillin' with my peeps
- Mar 13, 2008
Hi! Help me please! I went to a poultry farm today and saw several varieties of beautiful ducks, geese, guineas, and silkies. I'd love to have some ducks and maybe some bantam breed and/or small chickens; I have some standard heavies (chickens) now. She had call ducks, white mallards (smaller than I'd thought!), Pekins, fawn & white runners, Rouens, Lg./standard silver Appleyards, mini silver Appleyards, East Indies, at least one Mandarin (beautiful!!), Muscovies (nice, but not my fave), and some mutt types of the large size/standard sizes. I'd love to have some of the smaller ones (rationale being that smaller = more for the space available!and am leaning toward some calls, some white mallards, and a pair of the runners. What breeds are the most friendly, docile, non-flighty, and get along well with chickens? Any input here?
