I am new to the forum and after looking around this site is great. I love to read books for information but hands down this type of hands on information can't be beat. I live in Southwest Mississippi and I'm happy to find other members from my area posting. I hope to build a coop in time for the spring weather and would like to give chickens and some ducks a try. We have a 1/2 acre pond that gets duck weed in it every year and I'm hoping that some malards would be happy to eat it.
