    Hi There,
    My partner and I purchased an old farmhouse and a bit of land 3 years ago. We have had goats, guineas, sheep, and turkeys for a couple of years, and just decided to add chickens to the mix. Must admit that our favorite eggs are from the turkeys! The guineas like to hide their nests, but when we find them we've generally got over 30 eggs instantly! We have goats for milk, which turns into cheese, yoghurt, and ice cream. We've got navajo churro sheep for milk, wool, and meat, and heritage turkeys for meat and eggs. We got a beautiful mixed flock of dual purpose chickens - RIR, Sussex, Barred Rock, Americauna, Orpingtons, Maran, Leg Bar, Austrolorps, and one silly Silkie named Delilah!

    Welcome to BYC :D sounds like you’re running an amazing set up, very self sufficient. I find people who homestead so well very fascinating.
