    Hi there! I’m Cindy! I’ve been hatching chickens and ducks for a few years now. Last year I kept some chickens and ducks until fall as I had nowhere to winter them. This year I’m getting set up to winter birds for the first time. I know have 20 chickens, 12 ducks, 8 quail and 2 geese. I appreciate any and all advice!

    Hi, Cindy, and welcome to BYC. Sounds as if you are becoming a victim of 'chicken math'. Enjoy your flocks.

    Hello, Cindy, and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
    Where are you located in the world? That makes a difference on how you need to prepare for winter. You can update your profile with that information so it displays under your avatar.

    Hi Cindy Welcome to BYC,lots of people here to help you figure it out, though it would help knowing where you are from as different climates have different requirements

    Yeah that would have helped, sorry long day I live about 25 km north of Kenora Ontario in a small town called a Redditt (northwestern Ontario) Yes I believe I am a definite victim of “chicken math” ha ha Perhaps I need an intervention!
