You have quite a sizable flock. :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    That's a whole lot of chickens going on! Do you raise them for selling? It would be fun to see a photo of your huge flock, if you'd care to share.

    It's nice to have you here!

    If you're interested in ducks, have you seen the duck breed focus that started a few days ago? This one is on Aylesbury ducks!

    I realize yours is a cross but thought you might like to see the thread. Happy reading!
