    I really did it this time..... I bought my hubby 2 ducklings for Valentine's day. They were sooo cute. The next day I went back to the feed store for a feeder and came home with 4 chicks (2 RIR and 2 Gold sexlinks). a week later I added 5 more (2 barred rocks 2 Americunas and a beautiful Black sexlink). I am wanting to add 3 more girls and 2 more ducks to my flock very soon but I am thinking of getting started chicks proximately 6 - 8 weeks old.

    I think I might have a chicken and Duck hoarding issue...... I just can't stop myself...

    Thank you for enabling me. LOL Thankfully my hubby just shakes his head and asks if he needs to help me build a bigger coop and wants to know when the girls will start laying eggs and paying off on our investment.....Shhh don't tell him we may not ever get the money back....because they keep multiplying.
