Hi everyone just wanted to say hi! I am new to chicken raising and we just bought a 11.2 acre farm for my horses and now 7 chickens. I have a background in agriculture and work in R&D for an animal nutrition company.
I have 7 one-week old chicks right now. We were goign to get 6 but my fiance insisted we take all three of the Aracuna/Americunas they had left so that the one chick wouldn't be the only one in the bin. So we have 2 Buff Orphingtons, 3 Aracuna/Americuanas (Easter Eggers I think), 1 Golden Laced Wyandotte and 1 Black Australop.
I came here looking for help, advice and tricks since this is my first venture into raising poultry.
