    Howdy ya'll!
    I am a new member here on BYC, and I think I am really going to like it here, this looks like a great site. I am a married mother of three human kids, and many feathered and furred children as well. As far as poultry goes, I have in the neighborhood of 40 or so assorted breeds of chickens, mainly layers, a small handful of Rouen ducks, button quail, and guineas. I also have dairy goats, and run a small rabbit rescue. I hope to be getting into call ducks in the next few months or so, if I can find any, LOL.
    I am looking forward to getting to know you all, and can't wait to check out the whole site!

    I also am from Illinois and a backyard breeder of ducks and misc. poultry.
    Currently we are raising Grey Call ducks and Black East Indies, not to mention a few mix breed family favorites. I just happen to have a few Grey Calls that I am looking to sell. These are pet quality and I have a mated pair and one of their young left to sell. I can not ship them, but if you are interested and not to far from Joliet Illinois, let me know.
