    Default diy housing

    Hi all
    Since having my garden fenced off ( stop my dog getting out ) I think its time i got me some chics . Im not a novice at keeping stock as 11 years ago when i had the land & pond i raised/breed aylesbury ducks for many years .still Never done chickens before I bet its completely different ! lucky i have you guys to pick your brains about it .

    Just wondering has anyone here built a hen house or even better got some plans to build one ?

    Default Duck Help

    Hi Dave
    Hope yu dont mind me trying to pick your brains about ducks. As i have got 2 for my sisters girls and as i love duck eggs need to know if you have to give them jabs at vets to make the eggs safe to eat. Both ducks are crested duks and about 2 weeks old any other advice(tricks of the trade) most welcome

    Thanks tuger
