    Hello

    I’m glad to be here. I’ve been keeping chickens for a year and half. I have a flock of 16 right now, 15 hens and 1 rooster. Mostly I have Light and Dark Brahmas. I also have a few Black Langshans and Blue Laced Wyandottes. My single rooster is a Blue Laced Wyandotte and what a good rooster he is!

    I run a historic farmstay where my guests can come and experience life circa 1910! I offer historic dinner experiences, classes and overnight accommodations B&B style. I try to keep all things and creatures at my home to that time period. I also raise pigs seasonally and someday hope to get a milk cow. Sigh, that is a big dream.

    I’m glad to be on this forum as I am hoping to gain some helpful knowledge and maybe share a bit about my experiences. I hope to add some Indian Runners to my place and have lots of questions! I'm not even sure where to post my duck questions.

    Thanks for reading and I look forward to wonderful conversations!
    Susan Odom

    and just for a fun a recent picture of a few of my birds

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Look for the Ducks section under the Other Backyard Poultry section of the Forum. Hope you come by the Michigan thread, look in the Where are You - Where am I section in the Social section

    Have you considered a dairy goat? Much easier to keep than cows.
