    Hi. I am in Northeastern Utah and it is cold. It has been about -20 degrees for the past two weeks. Today was the first day it has been above 0 for a bit. I currently have 15 hens, 1 rooster, 3 geese (I thought they were all males, but now they are laying eggs, oops) 1 female duck and 5 male ducks. I would like to find the ducks a new home and get more chickens. The ducks are extremely aggressive to the others. I've tried to stop them but that's not going so well. I mail ordered all of these birds last spring as day olds. I also had 15 guinea hens. I'm not even sure what got into their pen, but I lost them all. :( I am the crazy bird lady and love it. :)

    Welcome to BYC. Thin out that flock of drakes. They pose a danger to your one duck and potentially to the chicken hens.
