They are extremely tame. They make great farm pets. They are funny and always interesting. They are trained to come in at night and free range on the farm during the day. The females are very loud; the males are very quiet and only make a rasping sound rather than a quack.
Our Border Collie, Biscuit, is in the background of the picture.
We do have ducks for sale.
We have three White Broad Breasted Turkeys, Lightning, Stormy, and are new addition Rain. They have been pardoned and are just pets. They are incredibly friendly, especially Lighting, the tom , who immediately puffs up and struts for us whenever he sees us . It has now become a game to see how may times we can get him to gobble.
Rebecca raises pigs for 4-H. She showed her two homebred Hampshire/Bluebutt crosses. This is Rosie, smiling after her bath.

Thank you very much to D & C Fuel for buying Shannon's steer.
We have some Herefords that we raise for beef. They free range on the farm along with our Holstein heifers.
We currently have 9 hives that produce about 300 lbs of honey each year.
