New Additions to the Ranch

April 9th, 2012

Hey everyone. We decided to pick up some Muscovy Ducks and Toulouse Geese for the farm.

The Muscovy Ducks eat a lot of bugs (specifically flies and mosquitoes). We hope that they provide some natural pest control around the farm and we are going to try to run them with the sheep to see if they help with some of the flies and mosquitoes that pester them in the summer.

The Geese are natural weeders. They like eating Dandelions, foxtail, and other invasive species. We are going to see if they can keep the weeds down around the yard and the ponds as a natural alternative to spraying or even using the weed eater.

It is a little bit of an experiment but I think it will be fun to see what these birds can do!
