I've been checking out the BYC website for a couple months now and have really enjoyed reading about other's experiences as well as the excellent information offered. I finally decided to join so I can participate in discussions and provide any useful information I might have. I've been rasing chickens and other birds since I was a child so maybe I can add something here and there. I'm not the most computer literate person so it might take me a while to get the hang of everything as far as posting pictures and such. Here's a quick rundown of what I have on the "farm" in Texas: 16 guineas 30 something mixed English bantams 4 emus 20 RIR 6 peacocks 2 cows 1 horse 4 goats 1 dog 4 cockatiels 1 daughter (5 years) , 1 son (2 years) My wife says it's too many but what does she know. The kids love them!
