    My family and I share roughly 6 acres. We rotate year round gardens, have one mouser cat, 5 leghorns, 1 barred rock, 2 black Australorps, 2 unknown beautiful brown lace hens, 7 muscovy ducklings, 1 daschund, and 3 mutts. The 4 dogs keep out any unwanted visitors, the cat LOVES bringing "gifts" to our doors, the chickens are free range during the day, and the ducks look cute and make messes for me to clean.

    I hope to learn quite a bit from this forum, as my family has only had our chickens for a year, and the muscovys are just 8 days old. Looking for ideas for our new larger coop, "converted 12x14 box stall."

    By day 8 my ducklings were getting less and less cute. Messiest critters I've ever raised. It was a happy day when they left the gargage for their new home outside.

    Yeah they sure do change fast. [​IMG] Though they are still adorable to me, if not a little smelly and REALLY messy. Its not so bad if I dont forget to clean the pen every morning.
