Fowl on the Farm

A few months ago we were able to purchase a small farm that we had been renting for many years. I'm sure I will post lots as we clean up that property and bring it into the fold. We have ran cattle on in for several years, but there is a limit to the amount of improvements you can make to rented land. Soon it will be fully integrated into a intensive rotational grazed oasis of pasture, with layered multi-species seasonal production including cows, sheep, chickens, turkeys, and ducks.
That's where this picture comes in. We now have in the brooder the ducks that will eventually live at the pond on the new farm. 125 Khaki Campbell ducks will be providing duck eggs for your enjoyment.  These things are very cute, so I'm sure more pics are sure to follow.
