Had chickens when I was just a wee girl on the farm and starting anew 20 years later LOL , and have seemed to go full throttle in over 4 months. My Family consists of: Wonderful Husband of 25 years (but don't tell him that) 2 wonderful full grown kids 1 awesome Granddaughter 2 sister mutts lab/terrier mix 2 tabby cats 22 Coturnix Quail 7 Bantams mixed 3 Amerucanas 24 Golden Comets 9 Indian Runner Ducklings 1 Blue Swedish Duckling with 4 hatching soon I found BYC about 6 months ago when I started thinking about becoming a Poultry Mama again. Have been finding all kinds of useful tidbits from you guys/gals. This is my hobby and enjoyment. Hopefully it could even expand further if all goes well. Trying to raise all in harmony together and so far it's been excellent. Since all were raised together there has been no pecking issue and all sleep, eat, cuddle together (even some of the chickens and quail gave the water a go but learned quick that they are not waterfowl) and ducks think it's unfair that chickens get a roost. All should be able to free range in a month. It's nice to meet all of you and hopefully I can help as well as time goes by.
