    Hi everyone! I used to be here EVERY DAY posting mostly in the duck forum. I took a long break due to my family's changed circumstances (both working full time), and my significantly reduced flock.

    I miss you all!!

    So, I'm back.

    My flock is still reduced. Only four Indian Runner ducks and a grey goose (Toulouse). I keep them mostly because they're so tightly bonded and I don't want to see them ever separated.

    I also have coturnix quail. Only three at the moment. One is the male we raised in the house and then bought females for because he was lonely, and who was afraid of them because BIG SCARY THINGS THAT DON'T LOOK LIKE THE PEOPLE WHO RAISED ME.

    I plan to get more in the Spring because the eggs are so yummy, and I love keeping them in such natural conditions--I enjoy watching them enjoy life.

    I also have three silkie chickens. LOVE them. They're just pet quality from Ideal (well, actually these we all hatched here on "the farm," from Ideal stock--the originals were eaten the night I left the coop open :( ).

    And, I just placed an order for fifteen pullets in the Spring--Ameraucana, white rocks, and red leghorns. We'll only keep a few and sell the rest locally. These are for the kids to raise.

    Anyway, just wanted to say hello, and you'll probably be seeing me around, mostly in the chicken forums now, maybe a bit in quail & ducks. I've missed you!

    Nice to "see" you all. :)
