hi all. I found the site when looking for information regarding keeping ducks on my small pond. we have 5 acres with a few sheep, one goat, a few pigs, 2 dogs and several barncats. we have always had chickens but lost our flock in a fire in april so we are starting over there. I just got a few Cayuga ducks and some baby gold star hybrids. baby chicks will arrive hopefully tomorrow. I think I posted a reply to a thread about ducks. still getting used to the site. great to find more chicken lovers.
