    Hello all, I was introduced to this site by a friend who has fallen in love with harvesting eggs from a home grown flock. Indeed, both him and my second job at an organic farmer's market, have inspired me to start raising various meat birds. Nothing of what I have tasted, commercially, compares to what those who truly care raise. I have started with a duck, hoping to get help and get much needed advice with this new experience.

    Tending to my chickens
    [​IMG] I own three ducks, and important things to know about them are:
    • Sometimes the male ducks will try to mate with female chickens, which is fatal
    • Ducks love to eat insulation, so cover it up well
    • Ducks lay on the ground, so be careful not to step on the eggs
    • Cover the top of the coop to ensure that the ducks won't fly out
    Have fun on BYC and raising your birds!

    Hi muttsfan, Where in the UP are you located? I attend Michigan Tech in the early 70s. Do you still get 350 inches of snow there each year?
