    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.

    We have 2 ponds, 1/3 acre and 1/2 acre. The 1/2 acre pond we had problems with algae and the 1/3 acre pond we had problems with duckweed. We bought 100 feeder goldfish for each pond and they cleared up the weed problems.​

    Thanks for the welcome everyone,

    I like the idea about the gold fish Redoak but there are catfish in that pond that might like the gold fish idea better [​IMG] we are working on getting back to basics. We have a small garden that we work with an old Troy built mule tiller and a open barn for the horses. I just wonder who came up with the term just like in the good old days. It takes allot of work to keep up a small farm and I have to give credit to anyone that keeps animals, it takes a special kind of person and some hard work at times.
