    Just saying hello and introducing the mini flock of chickens and Ducks:
    *flock numbers adjusted by local predators, local predator numbers adjusted by #8 shot ;)

    Chickens:
    Buff Brahma (rooster and hens)
    Light Brahma (hens)
    Rhode Island Reds (2 roosters and a hen)
    New Hampshire (hens)
    Cuckoo Marans (rooster and hens)
    Coronation Sussex (hen)
    Welsummer (unsure)
    English Orpingtons (x15 currently 1 week old approx)

    Ducks:
    Rouen (5x Drakes)
    Pekin (1x Drake, 3x Ducks)

    Muscovys:
    Black (1x Drake, 1x Hen)
    Chocolate (1x Hen)
    White (2x Hen, 1x Drake)
    Blue/White mix (1x Hen, 1x Drake)

    I think I've remembered them all, well apart from the ones that don't really have a breed/type and tend to get known as a heinz57 variety.

    I've been looking at the articles here for a few months and thought i'd better join. Some very useful information and also some highly innovative work-arounds for some of the seemingly expensive items required for keeping these wonderfully productive creatures.

    *apologies for any strange English, I'm foreign, from England.
