My family raised chickens when I was a child so I'm not completely new to them, but this is my first adult venture with my own. I got 17 6 month old chickens & 2 drakes back in March then for Easter, the Bunny, left 4 sweet pullets & 6 ducklings for the kids. I have to admit I've enjoyed the babies a lot more than the adults & I'm partial to my sweet little ducks. We lost 6 chickens to overstimulated Roosters & a young Lab adjusting. We currently have 4 White Rock pullets, 6 ducklings of unknown species, 2 Mallard Drakes, 3 roosters, 7 hens & 1 mean ole Rooster named Diablo whose biggest thrill in life is scaring me & chasing my girls. I'm not sure how many different breeds I have. I know I have Dominique but not sure what the rest of the gang are. I'll be posting pics & asking ya'll at some point. There are a couple I'm confused on. I found this forum doing research for my little flock. Seemed to be packed with information so I thought I'd join. I'm a stay at home mom of 2 girls, we have 6 chihuahuas, 2 Labradors, a Wiemaraner, cats & goldfish. I'm looking forward to learning all I can to give my little flock a wonderful life.
