Hi and welcome to BYC I am glad you could join us.
I have had chickens for about two years now still learning everyday. I am a kid and I breed and raise and feed all of my birds by myself. If it wasn't for a beutiful rooster who showed up at my house two years ago in November I would have never started raiseing chickens and I thank him for that his name is Fred.
And then I have 20 chickens and 4 turkeys. I will be getting some more chickens soon to start my breeding splash silks is and maybe silver partridge.
I have my rooster that showed up at my house he is an Easter egger, then I have one purebred Rhode Island Red,named Lexi, then I have two americauna, silver penciled rock, barred rock and salmon faverole mix hens, and then those to toe had a baby so they are then mixed with Fred, and then I have three Rhode Island Red Easter egger mix hens, I have 6 baby chicks from tractor supply 2 are silkies and the other 4 are just from the bantam tub there so I don't know what bred they are but ey are all four roosters so they will be finding new homes, and then I have three splash silkies, and one silver partridge silkie, I will be getting one buff Orpington, and one blue silkie rooster, and two more splash silkies.
I found out about backyard chickens from coming here for help and advice when I first started raiseing chickens and now I am addicted
Some of my other hobbies are taking special tiems to go and spend time with my dog, Shelby she is such a sweet heart she sleeps in bed with me and she kicked my in the face last night rolling over. And I no this still has to do with chickens but I enojy hatching and breeding chickens and turkeys
Um we are a family of 4 on a two acre place out in the country we have been here for about 16 years I haven't but my sister and my mom and dad has I ain't that old yet. We have been born and raised in McVeytown pa. And we love animals just my animals are 20 chickens and the four turkeys three cats and a border collie Aussie dog. And my sister had a horse, a cat, and a dog, my dad he has just what ever animals we have. And my mom has two dogs and she used to have a goat and three ducks. And a few more dogs that were chocolate labs our last one died when I was little she was the sweetest thing and thought she was a lap dog. I think she was 13 when she died. And o I forgot I have a pet Guinea pig to and my dad just brought home a baby snapping turtle off e middle of the road so it did t get run over and put it down in the pond. So as you can tell we really love and take care of all of our animals even we take care of strays that people drop off and my neighbors that just moved in they have a horse barn that I take some of my roosters to they have like 20 cats goats chickens Guineas pigs horses. And they had someone drop off this bantam rooster why people do such a thing drive down the road and throw them out the window in the middle of nowhere mean people.
