Well, after gaining lots of helpful insights from this forum for quite a while now, Ive finally decided to join. I currently live in the country and have been raising chickens, ducks, and a few geese for about 11years now. I have 24 chickens- mostly Buff Orpingtons and Buff Orpington mixes and 7 Crele Old English Game Bantams. I also have 1 Toulouse goose(he`s our duck protector), 6 Indian Fawn Runner ducks, 1 Pekin, 1 Khaki Campbell, and 2 black and white mixed ducks. I have also started raising Coturnix quail for the first time this year and currently have 10 of them. I`m really looking forward to meeting all of you chicken/bird lovers and exchanging helpful tips!
