    I've frequently read articles on this website, but never registered. so here i am
    um lets see, I have pretty fluctuating amounts of poultry, as I share my stock with my mom, I hatch everything out here and we trade depending on who wants what for the year.
    I currently have 40 hens, 6 roosters, (some mixed some pure)
    about 30 cortunix quail in lots of colors,
    11 ducks, mixed breeds and Pekings,
    30 button quail in a rainbow of colors,
    and one white chinese goose,
    at my moms house I also have 12 ducks, pekings and khakis,
    and around 16 geese, white chinese, brown african, toulouse and a few that are a mix.
    My mom has 9 ducks, all mixed breeds of pekings, anconas, cayuga, and runner. sorry about my terrible spelling. anyways she also has toulouse and a sebastopol goose.
    and i think that is it but I am sure I am missing someone... anyways
    what else? I guess I raise my birds for eggs, I occasionally eat a rooster here and there, but primarily these are pets.
    I don't know what else to introduce about myself so I am going to stop typing.

    I should probably expand on what kinds of chickens I have, I just gave numbers so I could get introduced but now that a few people have said hello I can take time to try to remember what varieties I have. (everyone is female unless I say otherwise)
    I have a male and female white faced black spanish
    12 black australorps (those are for my mom but are still young)
    6 silver laced wyandottes
    1 lakenvelder
    1 egyptian fayoumi
    2 cuckoo marans
    1 white crested black polish
    1 mottled houdan
    9 meat birds (dunno what they are. mc Murray sent them as fillers... white birds lol)
    1 partridge silkie... just an amazing bird
    1 ga noi
    some mixed breed gamefowl. mostly minor blue , kelso, and lawgrey
    1 cornish red
    3 white rock
    4 buff Brahma/ white rock crosses (roosters)
    1 buff Brahma
    2 mille fleurs
    and a turken (naked neck)
    1 porcelain mille fleur (rooster)
    and I believe everyone else is a mix of some unknown breeds. some have crests some dont and some have half a crest, like a little pony tail. some have furry feet and some are bare.
