The Duck Chronicles Episode Nineteen – Freedom to Roam the Fields of Green — 6 Comments

  1. I live in a suburb. We are allowed ten chickens, no rosters. Thinking about ducks instead. Will their noise bother my neighbors? I have a chicken coop set up with 3 different paddocks.

    • Since I am not your neighbors I don’t know what bothers them. Frankly to be blunt they quack, sometimes they are loud. We love them, I love hearing them, I can’t imagine it bothering me. But most people today seem to be idiots so who knows.

      Muscovies are quiet though.

  2. You can purchase those same cable ties directly from the manufacturer at their website. the black 6″ ones you like are $6.54 from Amazon with free shipping but are only $2.55 + shipping directly from monoprice. You end up saving about $1.00 per pack after you add in your shipping cost. The more you order the more you will save on the shipping.

    Monoprice also has great prices on their cables for your TV, Stereo, Computer, etc.

    I have no affiliation with other than being a very pleased customer.

  3. Jack…I think I’m starting to realize something here, are ducks and/or chickens the permaculture way of controlling bugs and weeds in the garden or food forest??? As soon as a weed pops up do the ducks eat it as a new green ? and of course, I can only imagine they go crazy for any bugs they can reach.


    • Precisely I can mow three acres (not fun) or let the ducks eat it. You should see them on grass hoppers in summer. It is a murderous ravenous military style hunting operation. They look like hunters driving deer, they move in formations.

  4. Just wanted to say these ducks are flipping adorable. I really enjoy watching the videos. All the knowledge Im gaining from your experience will help when I get my own.
