Just wanted to say hello. I had chickens as a child but have not even been around them in 25 years. This means I am a newbie! Started out wanting 6 hens. I got 10 straight run locally. I picked up 2 wheaton and 2 black Ameraucanas and 2 Welsummers. Then went to another lady and picked up a lavender Ameraucana, 2 EE, and 1 that I think was in by mistake and is 1 of her Seramas. Then I ended up getting 6 Silver Laced Wyandotte pullets from a local feed store. So I now have to build a coop for 16. Well thats me in a nutshell i have 3 dogs,4 cats, 4 parrots (1 is a bg macaw) and 1 horse!
