My name is Homer and I have 4 Guineas and 5 hens that are mixed breed 5 months old. I also have one rooster that appears to be RIR. I have 6 younger hens that are 2 Amber Links, 2 Rhode Island Reds, and 2 Wyndottes. We live in Southeastern Michigan. I have raised meat chickens several times as well as turkeys and lambs. Layers are new to me.
