I had to take a break from recording anything thanks to chronic strep throat, but I’m back with a new episode of Real Homesteader Stories!

In this episode, I reveal the ditch that’s supposed to save us from the flooding in the MidWest (you can guess about how well that went). I also give you a sneak peek at the broody hen who’s hatching quite a few eggs, and you’ll learn how to tell whether your ducklings are male or female without vent sexing!
