    I just checked the mail and I have a new Cackle Hatchery catalog the day before I got a Meyer catalog. [​IMG]

    I am doing my best to resist the fuzzy butts.

    At Least till later in the year. [​IMG]

    However my wonderful wife now wants me to get a couple turkeys and she wants ducks this year. Even though I don't know the first thing about raising either one of them.
    I was just planning on getting cornish X this year and being done with it.

    I wouldnt mind a turkey but they would have to be in the same run as the chickens and I dont know how well that would work.

    If ducks dont require a water source like a pond I could get some of them too but again they would be in with chickens and I dont know how well they would play together.
