Hello all. I am new to this forum but some of you may have encountered me on various other homesteading type forums. I am so happy to have found a place that is committed to being on topic and avoiding conflict-causing subjects! I have raised dairy goats for most of my adult life; they are my first love. I now find myself in places where I can't have goats and also have developed an allergy to my beloved caprines. Maybe someday... I have had chickens before but wasn't really passionate about them (50 beady eyed, razor beaked RIR cockerels, can you blame me?). I have recently taken an interest in chickens and particularly in geese. Have had quite a few ducks and they're nice, but I don't personally like the eggs and I hated killing them. I look forward to learning more about poultry.
