Mucovy Ducks. First choice for small farms and backyards. Muscovy ducks can lay up to 195 eggs a year over a 40-week season. They'll nest three or four times during the season, hatching up to 20 ducklings a time. That leaves plenty of eggs for you, and LOTS of great meat! Poultry for small farmers: Journey to Forever

Ochre Archives:  Bees kept in the chicken run. In this photo you can see one of the hives presently set-up in the chook-pen in the backyard. Apparently chooks and bees are a great natural fit as the chickens take no notice of the bees but help with pest control.
