    Hi,

    I raise ducks for eggs in far east county San Diego. I currently have about 115 Muscovy adults, and today ordered 260 Metzer Farms Golden Layer 300's. The eggs I priduce have been hugely popular in SoCal and I hope to learn better management practices here as time goes by. My avatar, is Bart, my alpha male muscovy.

    Hi Eric! Wanted to invite you to our upcoming san Diego byc meetup! We're probably on opposite ends of the county, but its super fun and you could sell eggs! :)

    The info:

    Our next MEETUP will be held in two weeks on Sunday, March 2nd from 12 noon till dark? At our little homestead in Valley Center.

    Potluck lunch :) I will provide a table with cups/plates/utensils, etc. And lots of lemonade. Please bring enough for your family and a bit more

    You are welcome to bring your chickens, Turkeys!! arts, crafts, other wares to sell or trade. Bring money, there's always lots of cool stuff. My daughter will have a girl Scout cookie booth

    Please bring your lawn chairs, pop ups, and other tail gating accessories:) I have a few picnic tables and seating for about 20. P.s. If you left your chairs at my house last year, I saved them for you!

    We will also have a donation box for clothes & shoes (size toddler to adult small) that our friend Oz will ship to Philippines for a local orphanage there.
