    Hello! We are new to raising poultry and got 9 pullets, 4 turkeys, 2 Pilgrim geese, and a baker's dozen of ducks this past spring. We're having a ton of fun but have so much to learn!

    We live in Michigan near the Ann Arbor area on ten acres.

    Welcome to BYC from Kansas, Sunshine! Wow! Sounds like you jumped in with both feet with all those different varieties! I have a variety pack myself of chickens, Guinea fowl, and geese. Such fun. Check out the various forums on BYC and you'll have any question you have answered by some really knowledgable folks. Best of luck in your poultry adventures!
