We are on our third year raising chickens and I have used this forum many times before for advice but I just now signed up. We currently have 11 adult chickens all different breeds (Brahma, Buff Orpington, Auracana, Australorp, Silkie, Black Sexlinked, Barred Rock, Leg Horn and some mixed ones from a good friend or ous) and 5 baby chicks (1 Silver Polish, 1 Blue Andalusian, 2 Speckled Sussex, 1 Partridge Cochin) and 3 ducklings (1 white Runner, 1 black Runner, and 1 we don't know) in the basement. We have never had ducks before but my boys wanted to add some ducks to our little flock. We love our chickens and they free range on our ranch. We have two labs and they love the chickens too. We are are looking forward to being a full member on this forum.
