Two Years  
Yipes, just realized it has been nearly two years since I was here. Can't say I have much to report. I suppose the big news, such as it is, is that we now have ducks, in addition to the chickens. We took in some young ducks to help a lady out who had to get rid of all her feathered friends back in the spring. They all turned out to be boys, so we got four hens yesterday. I'm about to try my first duck egg.

How are you having it? Boiled, fried, over easy? In quiring minds want to know! :)

I scrambled it with a little milk and some cheese. Yolk was huge, and kinda... gummy, I guess, when I was beating it. Tasted pretty much identical to a chicken egg. I'll have to try poached or something more pure egg to see if I can taste a difference.

Good to hear from you! Do the chickens and ducks coexist peacefully in the same coop?

They're able to, but the drakes are young and all sexed up, and they can hurt a chicken if they try and mate, so they mingle while supervised, the rest of the time they have a fence between them. Once they all mature a bit, they should be fine.

Hey, I never post either, and when I DO I promise to post/read regularly...but I don't :( I would love to have chickens and ducks

Same here. They're a lot of fun.

I'm so glad to hear from you. It seems like it's been forever. I don't post much anymore either though. It doesn't seem like much is going on since I stopped using the dating sites and don't have anything new to report.

Ducks? It sounds like you've taken in a lot of feathered friends. Do you have cats?

We still have way too many cats :)
