Howdy from NE Oklahoma! Been around chickens and guineas for years (and years), but havent had a flock for a few years... Just got back into it a while back... Have been a lurker around on this site for quite a while... Then recently heard about this site again from another forum I frequent http://www.survivalistboards.com/ So, here I am!! Built a new coop with open (mesh) sides on the north and south and a wire floor... Got a dozen straight run 6 week old Buffs and Barred Rocks from a gentleman down the road... Also brought 9 two week old guinea keets home too... Put them in separate brooders... side by side so they could get "acquainted"... Found out that 7 of the dozen straight runs were roos... Put the whole group in the coop as one big happy family... except the roos... Most of them are headed for the freezer... 2 will probably make "the cut"... Just last week got 10 more 12 week olds from the same gentleman... More Buffs and Barred Rocks with a few crosses and a couple Dorking... Hand picked these, so should be mostly hens this time... The chickens and guineas compliment one of my other hobbies... Gardening! Karl Great website!!
