    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!

    [​IMG] Hello and welcome to BYC! Sounds about right with the straight run. Some people on here have bad luck and took home 90% or more of cockerels. I was lucky and brought home all pullets from the straight run bin. [​IMG]
