I want to start off by saying "Thank you!" I recently (April 2018) got involved with chickens and ducks. I only have 9 chickens, 2 ducks, a toy poodle that thinks she is a rotwieler, a cat that could ride the short bus (no joke), and a squirrel at the moment, but I have high hopes to be able to welcome 5 more ducklings to the world VERY soon! I have learned a lot from reading answers to questions on this page, and you guys are awesome! I work as a Dependency Case Manager in child welfare (super stressful!!!) and taking care of my birds has been an outlet for me for the majority of the year. I love being outside, I can out-fish most men around where I'm from, I like to arrowhead/artifact hunt, and if I had a place on the river and about 20 acres of plowed field, I would be the most unproductive human being on earth! I have a bachelor's degree in psychology, and I have WAY TOO BIG of a heart to be a social worker. I LOVE animals other than snakes (I've been bit by a cottonmouth twice in the same incident), and me and my little zoo just survived Hurricane Michael at full force. It is rough right now, but all anyone can do is take it day by day. Thanks for adding me to the group!
