So I've been reasearching/reading for months now on various poultry. Hubby, being a man who knows to get outta the way and let me do things my way (love that trait in a man), suggested we simply buy a house outside the city so I can raise more livestock/gardens (told you he was a keeper). We're teachers at a charter school, so 80% of our days we work from a home office. Right now, we're still in town, which limits us to 5 "crowing fowl" which includes chickens, ducks, geese, guienas & turkeys. Currently there are 3 hens in the coop. We're plnning on adding one type of animal at a time, so that we're not overwhelmed with overadding on. Planned fowl: Quail Muscovy ducks Heritage Turkeys Geese more chickens perhaps guneas? and a really solid incubator. Ideally I'd raise 1-2 breeds of each sort, and inprove the flock while the culls would hit the dinner plate. I'm thinking of adding quail next month, but it'll be summer, which means 100+ days, every day. Can they take the heat like that? In what order would you add in? easiest > hardest? Large pens are an option, but coyotes are thick outside of town, so I'm not so sure on free range, even with more room. Plusses, minuses, pitfalls, things you wish you did differently?
