The Ducks Have It

After tons of research, we've decided on DUCKS.  Not only that, we've decided on a breed.  We'll be looking for Welsh Harlequins.  They should be good layers, and are considered "rare", so by raising these we will help prolong the breed.

We're making all kinds of plans: how many, when to get them, how to house them, etc.  Like we need something else to do!  It'll be fun, a new adventure.  We're planning on making a "duck tractor" or portable pen/house, so we can move them from place to place, letting them forage in the garden when not planted or when plants are established, to eat weeds and unwanted insects.
