Poultry / Fowl - Garden Birds
Whether you are into "Green Living" and enjoy the organic eggs of your own poultry or are a "sucker" for geese and ducks that have adopted you - this is the forum for you.
Can anyone identify this duck please. South Northants UK, On a local farmers pond.
Thanks for the info on sprouting seed for birds. I ferment feed for my friend's chickens because of the probiotics. I came across this article because I want to get back into sprouting seeds for me. I do add wheat grass seed to the chicken's feed the day before I give it to them and it softens the seed so they can make better use of them. Of course, in that amount of time the seed can't sprout. Now I have to time the ferment with the sprouting, lol. The chickens start yelling when they see me coming with their bins. They gobble it all up and make the sweetest "yummy" sounds.
I've recently been gifted with what I think is a Golden Pheasant, or hybrid thereof. I've attached a photo of the bird. I realize this identification may be difficult due to the young (1.5 mo.) age of the bird, but any help would be appreciated.
Please any help appreciated
We created this forum for the sister sites "avianweb.com" and "beautyofbirds.com" ... As our world turns "greener" many of us are considering poultry or fowl for our backyards. Other than "organic" eggs, they will keep our backyards weed and insect-free. Plus many of them are real characters that give us many reasons to smile throughout the day.
