New to the site....but been loving birds forever

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone!!  I have enjoyed reading the posts here and thought it was time to join in.  I am a farmer/farmer's wife from NE South Dakota.  Currently has 4 Easter eggers, 2 production reds, 5 guineas (3 male, 2 female), a peacock named Gus in one coop for the 'mature' birds and have 4 weeks old chicks that consist of 5 pioneers, 3 barred rock, 2 red star, 3 buff rock, 2 black star and 1 blue cochin.  Ordered some of these straight run and some pullets and I think I have 4 cockrels out of the group.  They are currently in a separate coop til they get old enough to start mixing them in with the old birds.  Got one odd peeper with my order......but she seems to be doing fine with all 3 of her legs!!
