    Hi, I'm Saskia, I'm 19, and am mummy to a gorgeous little girl called Callie Mai. [​IMG]: She was 1 yesterday [​IMG] I live in England, in London, near Canary Wharf. I have a house, and it has 4 acres of land. I have 23 chickens on an acre of land, and planning on getting some ducks and geese too [​IMG] [​IMG]:

    So, yeh, hi. A couple of questions though.

    Can I house all the birds together?

    What housing do ducks/geese need?

    Is it easy to get the special food?

    Thanks x

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. So glad you joined. You should post your question under the Ducks section. I am not sure about geese, but I would think they are like most animals in the need a secure pen at night to protect from predators. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] from New jersey. Hard to answer your feed question from over here. Sounds like you have enough space for all those critters. I hear that fox are a problem over there so keep your eyes open for them.
