Hi there from BC Canada! I have a large assortment of chickens and also muscovies and a goose. They are all living happily free ranging, even the ducks go for a walk together down the road to visit other animals. The chickens stay closer to home and all the birds like to hang out with me on my deck! I always Google questions about my birds and this site is always the first to pop up with info so it's about darn time I joined!
