Hi folks. Yeah, I'm new to the forum and new to the world of breeders. I live just south of San Antonio in cattle country, but cattle ranching just isn't for me. I was looking for ways to supplement my Social Security income, decrease the food budget, and eat a little healthier. I looked into chicken farming, but everyone in this area has chickens. After some intense research, I opted for Pekin ducks. The wife, kids, and grand-kids love the idea, and jumped on the bandwagon. The wife also suggested I use the 12' X 12' tool storage room of her barn for a duck coop, (yeah, she has her 36' barn, and I have my 3 car hot rod garage). We figured on starting with 2 Drakes and 8 laying hens and see how it goes from there. We have a 100' X 100' welded wire fenced area for them to run in, so no worries there. I'll be on the forum daily looking for info on my newbie questions and new ideas.
