    here is a pic of the new queen bed we are using on our porch - its solid mahogany and made by the duck man


    the benches are the same wood


    and here is his duck park


    He has 5 muscovy ducklings in their from my last hatch that will add some size and genetic diversity

    I have another batch of guineas that came from a different supplier that are just starting to pip.

    Its nice to finally get some good news. My live Guinea population is up to 11. It could reach 20!

    Thats all this crazy chicken man with crazy ideas could ask for

    Sometimes crazy ideas are the best. In my experience the worst that happens is that you end up having a great adventure!

    Pulling for a successful hatch!
