    Hello BYCs

    I started my flock this past April. My interest is in the eggs and the entertainment the birds provide. I look forward to all the knowledge I can gather from you fellow BYCs.


    My flock is about 60 birds. Some ordered from an online hatchery, some where given/gifts but most bought from the local feed store. Some of the breeds include -- barred rocks, rr, silver lace wyandottes, polish, dorking,BYMs, ameraucana and a few others. I also have a small flock of guineafowl that share the coop.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! What a lovely mixed flock you have there. I've not kept Guinea fowl myself but we do have a couple down at the farm where I keep the horse and they sure have a loud alarm call. Have you checked out the Guinea section of the forum? It's a great place for all your questions you have about them ~https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/45/guinea-fowl

    Good luck with your flock in the future. Be sure to ask any questions that you may have, everyone here to help and very friendly.

    Enjoy BYC :frow

Also if you want to research a chicken breed you can look at our Breed Page and view thousands of ratings and pros and cons of over a hundred chickens breeds.

    Welcome to BYC, Egs. Glad you decided to join our flock. Sounds like "chicken math" has definitely taken hold at your place. :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center.
