Hi everyone! I've been lurking around here for the last couple weeks, but have found so much good information on this site that I figured I should probably join in on the fun. I live on 7 acres in the Miami/Johnson county area in Kansas, and am planning on getting some peas and guineas in the spring. Currently, I'm still doing my research and drawing up plans for the brooder and the big coop/pen (it's looking like a quarter acre right now). I am new to birds, but love all animals and have some experience with parrots. Other than that, all my knowledge is straight from here. I've got 4 inside cats, 3 ferals, 1 dog, and 3 fish tanks, and am itching to raise these chicks! If anyone has advice for raising a mixed flock, all wisdom is welcomed!!
