    I have 6 ducks now- a pair of buff ducks, a cayuga drake, a magpie/cayuga cross hen, and two babies from them that are all black. I like them all but the buffs are my favorite:

    Quote:Ducks aren't too bad once they get big enough to go outside- which isn't nearly as long as chickens. If they can be outside and free to wander around in the day, the only really messy part is their water pool.

    [​IMG] Buster - here's a question for you. How many feathered friends did you have a year ago?

    How many do you have today?

    Quote:HAHA! A year ago I had one banty rooster that my son caught at a kid's rodeo. At this moment I have 37 chickens (6 are roosters), 6 ducks, 2 turkeys, and a bunch of eggs in an incubator. Oh and I currently have 3 incubators in the basement- a borrowed Sportsman, my Hovabator Genesis 1588, and a homemade one. I've come a long way and it's all the fault of the people on here!

    [​IMG] I'm betting you will.

    I have space just not a coop or anything for them - and I'm lacking the guts to do the processing.
    Oh I also have a freezer that could do with 25 chickens!

    Quote:After eating homegrown beef and pork this year, and getting ready to eat homegrown turkey, I am more than ready to supply my own freezer with homegrown chicken. A lot will depend on work because my wife had quite the load this year with taking care of puppies, a pig and at one point, about 60 chickens. I don't want her to have to be doing everything herself again while I am out of town all season.

    Buster be honest, you don't want her to be having to take care of them, or you don't want to hear about her having to take care of them LOL.

    Nice ducks. And that turkey looks yummy LOL
