    Default Greetings From Wisconsin

    I am a high strung country boy(35 yrs. old), with wife and two beautiful girls( 6 and 9) who enjoy helping with the bees. I raise ducks( pekins), chickens(cross bred brown egg layers),sheep(meat),horses( hay burners), hounds( coon, bear, and coyote). I am a carpenter by trade but from my first and only hive 7 yrs ago to the 1000 hives( ok maybe the wife and kids won't enjoy it as much now)I will run this summer don't leave much time for pounding nails. I am located in west central WI( land of monster bucks).

    Welcome!

    From somebody who's getting ducks for the first time this spring, are Pekins any good in the garden vs. potato beetles, cucumber beetles, or squash bugs? I'm sure they'll be good for slugs and Japanese beetles, but my guess is the others won't be too appealing to them. I'm planning on starting with some Runners since I can get them cheap locally, but I don't think they'll be much good for making this:

    Anyway, welcome to the board!
