    Hello "Peeps" Im Robert
    My wife and I started raising chickens with our kiddos,
    to teach responsibility and have a good time "together"

    Im not sure what kind of chickens we have, and I may have gotten us in over our heads:^}

    but heres what we have so far.
    we have 3 black chickens, one is a rooster, ( i think we have 2 roosters, but.... )
    and one cornish hen.
    we get 2 eggs every other day from these

    We have 30 straight run chicks that are going on 6 weeks,
    2 turkens going on 4 weeks,

    I screwed up and bought 3 turkeys,(6 weeks) that im trying to keep seperated from the chickens,

    and then we have 2 ducklings and 3 gooslings.

    Ive built a run (16 by 20) and we have temporary dividers for now, to let the birds play outside

    we really enjoy messing with the chickens.

    my kids argue over who collects the eggs,and I love it.

    im working on a coop but for now they lay in the shed(barn)

    I really need advice(cause daddy doent want to screw this up for his kids)

    nice to meet you all.
