Many natural born sovereign individuals feel downshifting is a giant step in taking back our lives. I agree. We are different from the Amish in that we embrace the use of technology yet draw the line at Trans-humanism, police state tagging, tracking, monitoring which invades or invalidates our natural born sovereign individuality. We reject the concept to become Assimilated BORG either as individuals or as a society.

A return to our foundation which natural brings us closer to nature by reducing the layers of our lives between us and nature. All around the world Corporations are downsizing eliminating so called waste. You can eliminate the waste of needless middle management between you and the apple you are eating, the entertainment you are viewing and the pace at which you labor. Remember, those who win and become STARS in the rat race are still RATS (the ‘star’ spell on you backwards revealing the real spell put on those who win the rat race).

Therefore in the spirit of living a life closer to our own nature we offer this post on Duck Raising. Which we will use to build a natural community within a natural society of natural born sovereign individuals. Once you give up that which makes you human, you’ve lost your soul and trying to take back your country would be a futile goal when you yourself has lost your soul.

May those capable of ceeing and hereing find this message in a blog.

Those who seek to take back their humanity have a clear path. Raise Ducks, Chickens, Rabbits, grow fruits, nuts, vegetables and start your native living. Add edible wild plants to hunting small wild game and you’ve gott et !!

Raising Ducks

Melvin L. Hamre


About 22 million ducks are raised annually in the United States. Most are produced under confinement on specialized duck farms in a few commercially important duck production areas. However, many farms still raise a few ducks primarily for family use or local sale. This publication is intended for the latter group.

Ducks are raised primarily for meat. Although most breeds used are relatively poor layers, the flock should be managed to save the eggs produced for food purposes or hatching. The commercial duck industry is built around the Pekin breed. Pekins reach market weight early and are fairly good egg producers, but they are poor setters and seldom raise a brood.

The Rouen is a popular farm flock breed. It is slower growing than the Pekin, but it reaches the same weight over the 5 to 6 month period of feeding and foraging under farm flock conditions. Its slower growth and colored plumage make it undesirable for commercial production.

The Muscovy, a breed unrelated to other domestic ducks, is also used to some extent in farm flocks. They are good foragers and make good setters. Muscovy males are much larger than the females at market age.

Meat production is generally of primary importance in selecting a breed, but egg production for propagation, brooding tendency, and the white plumage that produces an attractive dressed carcass should also be considered.

Keeping small, ornamental varieties of ducks, sometimes called bantam ducks, for exhibition or hobby purposes is increasing. Included in this grouping are White and Gray Calls, Black East Indias, Wood Ducks, Mandarins, and sometimes Teal. Most general poultry shows and some special bantam shows offer classes for these ducks.
