Just a hello as I am new here. I live in Duval county (Jacksonville) on the very NW side. I'm here ready to learn and assist if I can. I got the bug and now love my birds. Always looking for more and always creative things that come with the hobby (obsession). Anyone close feel free to get in contact if you like. I always like to meet or hear from those who share interests. Look forward to jumping right in! Thanks!

Hi, and welcome! I'm new, too, and from just east of Gainesville. Have my first little flock of 8 7 week old chicks.. it's easy to see why people get hooked! They're funny creatures.

What breed(s) do you have?

Hello and thank you! Its getting to the point of what breeds don't I have lol.
Turken (faves yes oddly)
Several link based breeds
Australorp
Rhode Island Red
White Leghorn
Cream Legbar
Buff Orpington
Lavender Orpington
Brahma
Black Jersey Giant
Americuna
Speckled Sussex
Marans (a few breeds)
and more several more.... including a hefty feed bill lol.

I enjoy it though. Keeps me busy, content, and love just watching the personalities come out. I also have 1 royal palm and 1 blue slate turkey. It started with a few then a few more and then it was like the gremlins... lol December I am adding a 50'x100' run for them in addition to what they already have. possibly 50'x150'. At this point its watching 3 red heelers run themselves tired as the chickens don't care anymore. theres a 6' fence between the run and the dogs with about 25' between. Still hilarious. :lol:

Hello there! We're from Fort Pierce (Saint lucie/Indian River County border). New to this flock raising thing. I'm not quite sure why it took me so long to find this thread!

We've got 26 chickens and 5 ducks. We've had a couple losses but not many.

Original flock 13 now - almost 7 months old all laying
(4) white leghorn
(4) barred rock
(5) red sexlinks

2nd flock 13 now - almost 5 months old 1 is laying more to come soon😁
(5) ameraucanas (I'm starting to believe they're Easter eggers... but I'm good with that)
(4) silver laced wyandottes
(4) black australorps

Our ducks... we had 1 original Pekin and added more and lost some. We have 6 now. I'm not sure who's laying we had up to 4 eggs recently.
1 pekin
2 buffs
2 gold star hybrid
1 rouen

Glad to be here! Love all the info and would be great to see who's close!

Wow, that's quite a flock!! Love it! Do you have a favorite breed out of all of those guys yet?

How are the turkeys? I must admit I've been afraid of poultry since I was a little kid because of a couple nasty turkeys! But now that I'm not scared of chickens anymore (haha!), maybe turkeys aren't so bad?

Sounds like they're going to have quite a palace of a run! That's totally awesome.

Hello! You have several breeds I've been drooling over! Do you have a thread where you've shared pictures of any of your 'kids'? I'd love to see!
