      Hi,I am raising organic free range geese and ducks for meat,and during the night I keep them in a next spring I want to start raising some turkeys(dinde fermiere bronze GB from grimaud freres) wich is a kind of large heritige turkey not a BB my question is can I keep.   Again ducks are messy so the coop had to be cleaned often (like weekly). I finally decided the ducks needed their own place. This was partly due to the mess but more so because we let the ducks out to spend the day on the lake and it was a fight to keep the chickens in the run and letting the ducks out. If you don't mind extra clean up, it's fine.

    More and more people are enjoying the benefits of keeping poultry, and chickens are perhaps the most rewarding of all. This book provides a practical guide to chicken husbandry, from hatching your first chicks to cooking with produce that you know has come from happy, free-range s:   Absolutely no roosters. The four can be any combination of chickens, ducks or geese. If you want more than four, then you must get an annual permit. That's the way I read it anyway. No problems to date. I don't think it would have mattered, but within a few days of getting our two ducks, I told the neighbors on either side of us about our new.

    This book gave a fairly in-depth overview of each - chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, goats, sheep and cattle. I particularly found the descriptions of the animals temperaments and personalities helpful.4/5. Turkeys and ducks settle down differently at night too. The Turkeys liked to roost, but not until they had strutted around inside the house a while, inadvertently shepherding the ducks from one corner to the next. The ducks tuck themselves into corners or snuggle against the walls on the floor. I knew we were on the way to complete acceptance.
