I have 4 daughters, a son, and 3 stepsons. We have 2 chihuahuas and expecting little puppies hopefully in about 1.5 months. We also have 4 Pekin ducks that I believe one is a buff duck. We live on about 7 acres and all our animals are completely free range. We love our little home filled with blackberries, mulberries and raspberries. I’m glad to be a memeber here and share our little journey with our first “farm”!
