    Hello Everyone!
    I'm a 47 year old zoo mom to: Standard Cochins, Bourbon Red Turkeys, Rouen Ducks, Ancona Ducks, Embden Geese, Standard Silver Appleyard Ducks, 4 Cats, 1 Ferret, 1 Donkey, 1 Mini Mare, Flemish Giant Rabbits, several hives full of bees, and Angora Goats. I am in deep denial about feed bills, but I have a nicely groomed and fertilized yard full of friends. [​IMG] I'm still learning about my poultry and this is the first time I have ever had waterfowl. The chickens have been around for years and I still learn new things about them all the time. I love to swap hatching eggs and have 2 incubators. I found this site some time ago and have been lurking around. I decided to register and join the flock.

    Nice, I used to live in Madison. Good things going on in Wisconsin in terms of organic food!

    [​IMG] Thanks! Yes, we've got lots going on in organic gardening (another one of my hobbies) and decent food in general. All my poultry have the luxury of getting out and foraging. I'm lucky to be rural [​IMG]
