US Grade 9 - 12
Have you considered adding ducks or geese to your farm or homestead? This course covers the basics of keeping waterfowl. We'll talk about the good, the bad, the feathered, and... well ... the foul about raising birds who love the water. This course consists of four video sessions: two informational videos, and two videos showcasing my real-life farm, wherein learners will meet some ducks and geese, as well as watch behaviors and see how the birds live and play in a free-range environment....
Students will learn the basics of how to care for ducks and geese.
In addition to several years as a veterinary assistant, I have been homesteading for more than 20 years, raising waterfowl for at least half of that time. We also keep diary goats, rabbits, chickens, turkeys, dogs, cats, and a peahen. It is very rarely quiet in our busy little patch of wooded coastal foothills. :)
Homework OfferedEach week will feature a short response assignment, and learners are expected to post in the classroom and interact with other learners' responses.

This course talks about predation as a part of keeping waterfowl. Some learners may be sensitive to the reality that some animals will kill and eat other animals. I do have one photo that shows the size comparison of a goose and a bobcat. Both are deceased and laid out side-by-side, but not gory.
