    Hello! I have a tom turkey, a female goose that I think is a chinese goose, and 8 baby ducks. 2 mallard, 2 blue suede, 2 blue runners, and 2 peking. I have no idea what I am doing so expect to hear a lot from me.

    G’Day from down under kimtastic618 [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    For one thing, you should have hen turkey for your TOM. When he gets randy, he will probably go after your geese, chicken hens etc. I don't know about geese but, Toms have killed chicken hens trying to breed them.

    Welcome from a fellow newbie. You are in the right place for learning and I LOVE that you're reaching out. Just think, someday you are going to be the one with a world full of poultry knowledge to pass along.

    Keep learning and enjoying your flock. That's what it's all about.
