    Hello from Greene Co. Arkansas. [​IMG] I'm in the Northeastern part of the state... not terribly far from Missouri and Memphis, TN.

    I grew up with chickens, but started keeping my first flock as an adult for a year or so ago and have been adding to it gradually.

    Please excuse any misuse/absence of proper terminology...[​IMG] I promise I'll learn while I'm on here.

    I keep: (Names are shown in parenthases)

    12 Guineas now about 8 mos old:
    10 Pearl Gray(9 no name cant tell the difference and they move too fast to differentiate & "Smashie Head")
    2 White (Snow White & Seven)

    4, wait make that 6 Bantams... had 2 hatch X-mas & Day after:
    2 Black Cochins Rooster & Hen (Friday & Fancy)
    1 Belgian D Uccle (Chester Dale)
    1 mystery black & white rooster (Janice)
    2 chicks that appear feather footed and mostly black but white appearing on pin feathers and yellow underbodies (no names yet)

    My Big Birds Include:
    5 Plymoth Rocks, 1 Rooster 4 Hens (The General, 3 named Candy [cant tell them apart] & Xanax/"Xannie")
    2 Red hens.... don't think they are Rhode Island Reds, I'll look at the breed page more closely & update (Merle & Cream Puff)
    1 Black Hen, maybe mixed breed she;s got orange flecks on her breast (Cocoa)
    1 Ameraucauna or Aracauna... I'm not spelling that right, but I think you know what I mean Gold & Gray, but not feathery-faced (Kitten)
    1 Red & Black Rooster (Colonel Cossey)

    Well, I guess that's what you're interested in hearing. I'll try updating with pictures once I get used to the site.
