There are 5 geese, 2 American Buff, 2 Sebastopols, and an Embden/Toulouse gander
and too many ducks, a bunch of Khaki Campbells, Rouens, 3 Saxony girls, Anaconas and a few crosses. There are still baby ducks on their way growing up, and oh yes, the Muscovy ducks too.
There were only 5 Guineas which is plenty, but the hens hatched another four and another hen hatched another 2 I think.
The chicken varieties are my project chickens, White Chantecler/Ameraucana crosses. I was looking for a hardy bird that is a good winter layer and a great forager. So far, the crossed birds are all that, but winter will be the test.
Then there are some others: both bantam and standard Sultans, Malays, Crevecours, Houdans, Sumatras, Speckled Sussex, White Sussex (goes by a different name, I know, just can't think of it), gold laced Wyandotte, a couple of turkey hens, various Silkies, and pure Ameraucanas, Chanteclers (both white and Partridge) and some bantam crosses with Silkie and/or Japanese bantam influence.
Some of these birds are pretty rare breeds and were brought from Ontario this spring as chicks. Most of the others were picked up locally or somewhere in Alberta from breeders.
Some of the roosters will have to go before winter, but according to the broody hens, that is still a way off, so they can enjoy another month of this gorgeous fall we are having. Then….oh well.
