I am from Australia, breed ducks and have a block of land near the Victorian Goldfields. I love heading up there for a weekend, and often take my ducks for a drive, and sometimes even take Monty one of my ducks out detecting with me. Just wondering if their are any poultry keeping gold seekers out the in America?????? I have only ever found one decent piece- A 9 gram nugget that was under a few nails. Obviously why so many others may have missed it. BUt I have only been detecting for a year or so, and still feel I have a lot to learn.
