I am a transplanted Okie living on the edge of the Flint Hills in Kansas. My husband and I have built ( are building ) a new house on his family farm. So on to our next project - chickens, guinneas, turkeys, ducks and geese. We are both beekeepers and that is why we are in the chicken business before we are really ready. A lady we bought some bees and equipment from had some chickens, 1duck, and 2 geese, she was moving and needed to re-home them. So we brought home 3 older hens, 7 baby chicks (but not their mother), 1duck, and 2 geese. And that is when the fever hit. We now have 18 keets, 4 turkeys, 2 Buff pullets, 2 EE (probably) Roos, 1original old hen, 7 chicks (still growing), the duck and geese. The coop is now in place and the yard is being constructed between the rains. We spend way to much time watching our birds (the house will never get finished).
