    So I was bugging my parents about getting ducks THIS year and they were all like "[​IMG] you got the 7 chickens and the 26 pheasant we don't even have space for ducks [​IMG] which is not true because we have a 3 acre field in the back and a 1 acre field in the front, then a 20 acre field next to us with a swamp that we own 4 acres of. so I think we have enough. So I kept asking my dad and I said what about next year? sure enough I am getting ducks. I am trying to talk him into goslings but he says that geese are mean!
    So I think (if I can) get three ducklings from MMH with packaging peanuts. I am getting:
    1 Rouen drake
    1 Rouen hen
    1 Cayuga hen.
    Just fealt like sharing [​IMG]

    LoL...good job wearing him down Ticks! Now - just tell him that Giant Dewlap Toulouse are the sweetest gooses on the face of the planet and he should pre-order you some from Holderread's for next year!

    You know - must be prepared right! [​IMG]
