    Hello! So, I'm Officer. I've been stalking this site for a couple months now and finally decided to join. I've had chickens for a few years now I think and I currently have probable a medium sized mixed flock. I currently have-
    4 road island red hens.
    1 bantam rooster of a unknown breed- (Nicknamed the Banshee)
    1 broiler hen.
    1 Red ranger rooster. - Probable my favorite and sweetest rooster I've ever had. He loves to get picked up and held and cuddled, And He has never been aggressive to any of the other chickens. He's my bby. ;-;
    2 Bantam cochins, 1 hen, 1 roo. ( Named Chica and El Toro )
    2 Silkies, 1 hen, And 1 roo (Named Charlie and Que )
    2 black roosters of a unknown breed? (Plans to turn them into dinner)

    Somewhere along the way I ended up with a bunch of roosters. Oops. Luckily I've only ever had 1 rooster that was too aggressive, And He was quickly made dinner.

    After that, I have a few dogs. A couple outdoor cats, And two indoor ones. (Miss Kitty and Juvy ) I have 1 cockatiel. And my dad raises fish. Tilapia to be specific.

    So, Hi!
