    Just popping by to say Hi!
    New member, I have had chickens just under a year, and ducks just over 2 years, they were the first animal to be bought when we bought our farm 2 years ago. I also have horses!

    My coop is currently 8x6x10 with a 25x31x12 run

    Currently we have 9 ducks, 6 chickens and 2 rabbits housed there.

    We have for chickens:
    3 Columbian Rocks, 1 rooster (Roo), and 2 hens (Little Hen and Annie)
    1 RIR hen (Henny)
    1 RSL hen (Babs)
    1 BSL hen (Chicken)

    We have for ducks:
    3 Muscovy drakes (Donald, Pipper, Pepper)
    6 Muscovy hens with potential crosses in a few (Daffy, Daisy, Daphne, Duckie, Sel, Piper)

    We have for rabbits:
    Thumper - Harlequin X New Zealand
    BunBun- American Sable

    Those that have left us:

    Qwankie- Harlequin duck hen
    Chicken Little- White leg horn chicken hen
    Lucky- Muscovy duckling

    Always looking for more chicken/duck friends! Everyone thinks im a crazy chicken/duck lady, they just don't understand! Haha!
