Hi, my name is Bridget.. New to this forum but have read here and there over the last year. Almost an exact year ago, I bought my daughter some chicks and two ducklings.. she was all about them as they were small but slowly lost interest as they got bigger. So being the kinda person I am, took over their upkeep, feeding and what not. Have learned little bits about them and that longhorns can be mean.. lol finally decided to join here with the intent to learn more as I've found that raising these birds has not only been interesting but well, rather fun. And if I can, am planning on getting a few more. They helped keep a lot of bugs down last summer while providing eggs, so it's truly been a win-win for us.
