Ducks and goats, much like chickens, can be easy to raise if you have the right tools – knowledge, space, and commitment. When introducing a new animal to your property and your neighborhood, there is always a lot of research you must do, as well as a learning curve, but with the right awareness, and careful attention, ducks and goats can become a lovely and extremely entertaining, even productive and profitable, backyard addition. We’ll discuss the right feeds, space and hygiene requirements, breeding/birthing, first aid and veterinary skills, and putting your animals to use for eggs, milk, and more.
