Howdy Everyone

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I live in the Northern Shenandoah Valley in Virginia and have kept chickens for six years. This spring I am adding turkeys. We have 18 hens and three roosters and I'm currently deciding what to do with two of roosters, a terminally broody Langshan and my oldest hens. My initial solution is to cook the roosters and use the hens for garden preparation. I've joined to learn how others are dealing with their chicken issues and offer advice where I can.

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! It sounds like a good plan for your Roos and hens, they are being put to good use by doing this. Good luck with adding your turkeys to your flock. They are not something I have kept before.

Wishing you the very best of luck for the future. Enjoy BYC frow.gif

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
