    I'm not new to chickens, just dropping in to say hello to everyone and let you all know I am here to help whenever I can. I am learning everyday about chickens. We currently have a little over 100 chickens, 9 rabbits, 1 dog, 1 sun conure, and 1 kitten. :D

    A sun conure! I have one hen, a jenday male, and one three year old offspring of the sun and jenday. My pair destroys their eggs as soon as they start to hatch. I'm hoping that my tiny serama hens will be able to hatch the conure eggs. Both, my wife and I are experienced in hand feeding. I dislike using incubators. Previously we used an aged pair of cockatiels to hatch and foster the chicks for the first week. Unfortunately the cockatiel pair died last winter at 16 years ofd age. Welcome to BYC.

    And what kind of chickens?

    What a great idea! I used to have a peach faced lovebird and a fischer's lovebird. The peach faced laid SO MANY EGGS! The Fischer appeared to be doing his job in the nest box, then when he finally came out, she had pecked him nearly to death. I could never get the eggs to hatch.

    I've also had various finches and a cockatiel. I've had my sun conure (Pasqually) for 6 years now. He is a rescue bird and is missing one of his toes due to neglect from previous owner. He's very pretty and super cool. He loves to dance! I also had a nanday conure. I had to re home him because he & pasqually were so loud the neighbors complained.

    Oh, yes, the chickens....we have a whole big mix. Rhode Island reds, Easter eggers, buff orpingtons, barred rocks, blue copper french Maran, crested cream legbar, speckled Sussex, light brama, austrolorpe, black jersey Giants, and of course barnyard mixes. I'm sure I forgot some of the breeds.

    Locally I am known as the bird man. I started raising birds when I was 12 and now I'm 61. Over the years I have raised hundreds of different species of birds, mammals, fish, and plants. Right now I'm fascinated with my serama bantams. I look forward to seeing and hearing about your "zoo".[​IMG]
