hi! We’re in middle TN on 30 acres. We got our first birds this summer and are really enjoying the experience. Started with 8 chicks and 3 ducklings. Quickly realized ducklings are MESSY and adorable...so about 6 weeks later picks up 5 more chickens and 3 more ducks! LOL. We are learning as we go, but enjoying them tremendously. Oh, we have 6 guinea hens in that second batch too! Just installed our first electric chicken netting fence and am really enjoying not having my flock on my patio! LOL. We are raising for eggs right now...looking at doing a meat bird run in the spring. We’ve built two tractors and learned a lot there too. Love how everyone is so willing to share knowledge and experiences!
