I have 12 4 mo old chickens 2 toulouse Geese same age 4 newer chicks and 11 Ducks 5 Mallards 1 Rouen 2 Buff Orpingtons and a few other breed I cant think of off hand.. its gonna be a challenge in Alaska keeping them year round but already planning for the winter and summer just got here.. Looking forward to the site and I am reading and catching up on 20 years of knowledge that has changed since I grew up raising birds.
