Yeah, again with the ducks. What can I say. I think that they will be a better starting animal for us and our set up than chickens. I’d like to make it clear that I’m not anti-chicken, there will most likely be chickens on our homestead at some point in the future. My wife keeps making the case for guinea fowl (I’m pretty sure they are no relation to guinea pigs). She has been pointing out how they eat ticks, and well…tick check has been a normal occurrence for us, at least till it gets a bit colder.
