    So I have been reading many posts here and have not joined until today.

    I live a bit north of Baton Rouge and I have some land with a pond and a nine year old so we decided we would start a small farm.

    I have 13 chickens and 11 ducks. My chickens are three Barred Rocks , two Rhode Island Reds, 2 Red Stars, and six white Leghorns. I have 5 white Peking ducks and I am not sure what the rest are since I got them at the local feed store. But I think they are 2 Swedish, 1 Rouen and the other 3 I am really unsure about.

    I also have a large garden where I raise vegetables and flowers and herbs.

    I have about 6.5 acres and a huge pond and I have made houses for the chickens and the ducks. They are kept separately. The chickens have a huge yard with just a chain link fence and no covering on top. The ducks have a big house and are free to roam where they please.

    I have not been at this very long and these are my first birds. I have been gardening for some time and I have been living here for years and have had time to watch what other animals living here and around my land.

    I am working on getting great pictures. I have so many that do not always make sense. I have several videos. Some are just adorable. Can those be posted too?

    After doing a lot of reading on here I also adjusted my description as to what kind of birds I have. Ya'll are so smart and have been doing this so long. I hope I am as good one day!
