Hello, I am new to the site and new to raising poultry. I will be receiving 10 ducks from Metzers March 18th. I have used BYC for research and to talk my wife into getting ducks. I live out in the country in west central Ohio. My daughter is 6 and is already starting into puberty. I am convinced this is due to the crazy amounts of chemicals, antibiotics, and GMO in our food and everything else we come in contact with. I hope to one day be at least mostly self sufficient on my little bit of land. I will lean on this forum heavily for information. I have also bounced over to BYH and looked at meat rabbit husbandry, but my wife is concerned about her ability to eat animals we've raised. I am an avid outdoorsman and hunt, fish, and camp as much as possible. Josh P.S. I know my screen name is unusual so here's the story: I was a combat medic in the Army. During this training it was common for the instructors to tell us to pretend we had an extra medic and his name was ghost medic. I have always thought that to be funny hence the name.
