    My name is Michelle and I am new. This is my first time to own chickens and turkeys. I have 10 chickens, 1 rooster, and two turkeys. We thought very long on our decision and got our feather children in mid March. I can't at the moment remember our turkeys' breed. We have three Silkies, two Ameraucanas, and I can't remember what breeds the rest are. The only rooster we have is one of the three Silkies. He crows starting at 3-4 am and sporadically all day. Our turkeys are males and are inseparable. Best buds!
    We also have two cats and two small dogs.
    I am married(2013) and my husband is an otr truck driver. I have one step-son.
    I live in Azle, Texas and enjoy our small rural/suburban community.
    I first found this site when I looked on Bing for chicken and turkey care. This site has a wealth of very good care tips and answers!
    Best regards and looking forward to learning about our new feather kids!:love:jumpy:ya
