    Hello, my name is Teresa. My husband and I first got chickens this year in March. We have a ton of chickens. A newly acquired friend gave us all her Dutch banties and Egyptians. We also have 6 gold star hens, 1 Buff Orpington hen, 2 Rhode Island Red hens, 1 black star hen, 1 black Australorp hen, 3 black star roosters, 1 black Australorp rooster, 2 turkies (male and female), 2 Guineas (male and female i think), 1 buff runner duck hen, 1 khaki campbell drake, and 1 roeun drake.

    I found y'all on the internet. My other hobbies are fishing, spending time with family, and taking care of my chickens and ducks. I am married and have one son who just turned 21. Luckily I work from home so get to listen to my chickens and ducks every day!!

    I honestly never saw myself enjoying taking care of chickens and ducks but....I LOVE IT!!

    [​IMG] wow you got a whole lotta chickens - do they all get along well? A lot of folks have integration issues when younger chicks meet older birds, etc.

    Welcome Teresa! We don't have ducks, but we get a lot of pleasure watching our free-range chickens (which we share with neighbors). In total we share 11 hens, 1 rooster, and 2 peeps at this moment in time. It's a motley flock, but mostly Easter eggers (my favorites).
