New to backyard chickens

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi my name is George, and I am new to backyard chickens.  My wife has been a member for about 8 weeks now.  She is Dpeabody28.  We have only been raising chickens for going on 8 weeks now, but I have been around chickens since I was real little.  My grandfather has raise pretty much every breed of livestock, but his favorites were his chickens and rabbits.  When he passed he had a total of 100 R.I.R's I wanted to keep his birds but where we lived at the time we couldn't have chickens.  So when I had the opportunity I wanted to carry on his legacy raising chickens.  We now own 8 Buff Orphingtons, 4 Rhode Island Reds, 4 Barred rocks (Plymoth Rocks), 1 Americana, 2 Black Sex Links, and 2 Silkie's.  We have raised all but one from peeps, and have enjoyed every minute of it.  I'm looking forward to getting some eggs and hatching some.  I look forward to meeting everyone.  We live in Waterloo, SC.

Home of the world's cutest dachshund, one crazy blue heeler, two cats,
              one fat pony, and many (but not too many!) chickens

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?
