    Heres my lil chicken shack - what started out as 12 RIR hens has grown into a habit... i think i may need help... is there like a chicken raising hotline or something I can call?

    Layer yard - there should be 15 RIR hens and 1 roo in there.

    Nursey yard on left and turkey yard on the right.

    There are 16 Jumbo Cornish Cross and 6 lil buff orpingtons in the nursey yard

    There a 4 burbon red turkeys (2 hens / 2 toms) and 13 buff orpington hens in the turkey yard.

    And if thats not enough i have a RIR setting on 7 eggs


    Did i mention raising chicken is habit forming? Only 54 birds and more on the way that aint so bad now is it? Surely i could stand for a few more.

    There are quite a few of us on this site with a chicken addiction. I started with 8, and now I have over 100, so I probably need help too. Nice set up.
