    Thank you! (i am planning on making the chickens their own run) i would also like to know if you could put RIR with silkies because my boyfriend wants RIR's for eggs 5 at most and i want to be able to keep the chickens all together? also any suggestions for ducks?

    Down on the Suwannee River
    Muscovies will eat and take over.
    They will breed to pekins and produce mules.
    A water source to breed in prevents injury. Most people do not know that they should be breeding in water not on ground. Even a baby pool filled will be enough. And a lot also don’t understand that they also need water to swallow.

    TSC can order for u anytime, and u pick up at store.

    I definitely would not house RIR with Silkies. An aggressive breed with extremely Docile chickens doesn't work. Plus the different feathers..
    Ducks I'd get a lighter breed..None of the huge or tiny..
