    This is our first year of for doing chickens and boy let me tell is an addiction. What started as a few egg layers has turned into 22 layers, 18(now 17 after butcher 1) cornish cross meat chickens and 4 turkeys(2 bronze and 2 white).
    Egg layers we have:
    4 Rhode Island Reds
    4 New Hampshire Reds
    2 Isa Browns
    2 assorted bantams(unsure on spec breed)
    4 Australops
    4 Barred Rocks
    and 2 unknown because I can't remember.

    It really is a lot of fun, now I can't wait for them to get moved from inside to the outdoor coop I just finished building. I posted it in the coop section call "Custom Designer Coop". Check it out and let me know what you think!
