    Howdy all. Just a back yard farmer here. I live in sunny Tampa with my wife and two foster babies. Ive had chickens for several years now and we just got 3 pekin ducks and 1 Swedish blue. I also plan on getting several different stands of turkey on my little micro farm (I was thinking royal palm, slates, and bourbons) and eventually a goat or two.... and maybe a pig. Ive never had ducks or turks before so im pretty sure ill be posting a lot of questions in the near future. Ill share what i know, which isnt a lot. I like to learn on the fly and under pressure. Thanks in advance and happy farming everybody.

    Thanks for all the "hi theres" and such. My coop is under renovation so ill try and get some pics up of all the improvements im making. I went fishing a couple weeks ago and my buddy caught a big snook. I pulled my phone out to get a picture and..... well, lets just say my phone was lost. Along with every picture I have taken in the past year and a half. Thats what you get when you dont back up your files. Lol.
