    Hello! [​IMG]

    I have been reading topics from this site for sometime now and while I had signed on , had not said hello yet!

    I am from ND and have been raising chickens for many , many years. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I have , at the moment only around 45 laying hens, three geese , 4 Guinea hens and a few roos. Almost all my layers I have now I hatched out from previous hens , having recently hatched out two batches of chicks earlier this spring . But everyonce in awhile I order new blood. I also like to do butcher birds at least once a year and with the goofy weather we are having , I am glad to have had them already done this year in late May!

    I am looking forward to my time on here and picking up more of the in's and out's of raising chickens from others , there is always more to learn! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What type of rooster is that? I have never seen a comb like that in my life. At first I thought it was a bouquet of flowers LOL.
