Greetings! I have actually been a fan of the website and forum for a while, and finally decided to join. Actually needing advice on one of my doves encouraged me to finally join.
I am not new to chickens. My parents raised chickens when I was little. A few years ago my partner and I decided that we needed our own flock. We started with 12, then chicken math took over. We currently have 30. Australorps, Silkies, Cochins, easter eggers, Golden Comets. Last summer an elderly neighbor decided he needed to move south and gifted us with 25 bobwhite quail, 6 peach doves and 6 homing pigeons and a parrot. The parrot has been joined by conure and a few parakeets. We have quite the feathered menagerie
