    What a wonderful forum y'all have here! [​IMG] I'm considering having some chickens - and maybe guineas - for the eggs and bug control, but haven't bought anything yet. There's so much fantastic information here that I haven't stopped reading for days. [​IMG]

    Have a great day, everyone. [​IMG]

    Welcome!

    I grew up in Eastern NC.

    I love this forum. So much good info! I don't think I would have gotten chickens without it.

    Howdy neighbor and welcome to the addiction!!

    If you are looking for an excellent egg provider and bug terminator I say go for the Rhode Island Reds.

    Mine have eliminated every ant colony on the property. I have not seen a tick on me in over a month and all the other bugs have declined so much!!

    Buff Orpintons and barred rocks are good also!

    [​IMG] So when are going to get your chickens or guineas? Don't know exactly where you are but someone in Rocky Mount, NC is selling guineas and turkeys. Do you have a coop yet? [​IMG]
