    Hi everyone, My name is josh and my fiancé is Julia. We recently purchased our first flock the chickens are a couple months old now, and the ducks are nearly a month. We got the chickens for eggs and the ducks for eggs/slug control in the garden. We currently have four variety's of chickens and Peking Ducks. The chicken Varieties include, Black Austrolorp, Buff Orpington, ISA Brown, and Amercauna. We are excited to be part of the forum, and look forward to meeting many of you.
