    Hi! I've been reading this site for months, learning a few things here and there but wandered on over here again just recently looking at duck information as I try to figure out if my little ducklings are male or female and if I really have a Magpie or an Ancona (he's white and blackish green/ but looks more like a magpie with green bill but I haven't found any info on whether a magpie can be green)


    Eventually chickens will be added to my little menagerie (probably next spring) and figured I probably should go ahead and join the forum because I'm gonna need tips on building a chicken tractor [​IMG]


    My little farm consists of horses, dogs, goats, cats, and recently 10 little rapidly growing ducklings (when are they officially 'ducks'? I'll have to figure that one out [​IMG]) Chickens are next on the 'grow the farm' schedule and eventually sheep and a cow or two (hopefully mini cows [​IMG] So I don't end up running out of room [​IMG])

    Actually, I'm not from Bogalusa, lol, though I do laugh when people ask because it was a play on words that started with the town's name. I'm on the SW side of the state, just a bit south of Crowley [​IMG] between two smaller towns, one of which is the duck capital [​IMG] but most people recognize Crowley before they recognize Gueydan so I usually use Crowley as a reference point, lol.

    Bogielousa is the nickname my dad calls my dog Bogie, lol. He's spotted KINDA like an appaloosa horse, (blue merle aussie) but I like the name so much because of the Louisiana reference that I kept it, hehe. The name travels with me because I got the ducks specifically to teach eventually the dogs, more specifically Bogie, to work ducks so that we can maybe do some herding dog trials [​IMG] and once they accomplish that they'll retire to my pond as pretty ornaments [​IMG]

    [​IMG] & [​IMG] from Alabama. Aussies are a great breed, aren't they? I had one as a teenager, & she was very easily trained to herd my grandmother's ducks & it was something she loved doing. Good luck with your ducklings & with teaching Bogie to herd [​IMG]
