personally i am not into animal husbandry. it's bad enough that i bake own bread and make cheese with further plans for hams and sausages. but my FIL has few farms in the area and occasionally we enjoy the benefits of fresh eggs, milk, meat and veggies. i've had eggs from ducks, geese, chicken and guinea. all excellent.
The more you post the more I realize that there is someone out there in your life who is very lucky to be your partner/husband/soulmate. You are living a good balanced full life. My hat is doffed to you!
