I have definite ideas about what I would like to add to my flock over the next year or two. My reasons are a combination of practical and whimsical. I like to pick up strays and rescue things. This is what I have in mind, and I would like you all to tell me if I am setting myself up for problems: I already have: 2 roos 6 hens (2 leghorns, 3 RIR's--supposedly, but they look like Buff Orpingtons to me, and a pet) What I want: 3 easter egg hens several more laying hens from a battery farm or shelter 5 or 6 guinea fowl to eat bugs in the garden 2 female ducks to lay eggs and look cute in the pond hubs has been promising me A male turkey to look cool (I hear they also keep other birds from fighting) I have the kind of shed that you can keep adding on to, and 3/4 of an acre yard. I don't plan to go out and get all these critters tomorrow; rather, I am keeping my eye out on Craigs list, Free Cycle, and Petfinder. I suppose it will take me a couple of years to gather all these up. Please let me know what you think. Alll thoughts and criticisms are welcome! Thanks!
