    I am new to the site but have been raising my chickens and turkeys since spring of this year. My duck i have had for 3 years now and have raised ducks for over 10 years. I have 3 turkeys that are my loves. I also have 3 hens, 3 roosters, 13 chicks that are unsexed, and 4 unsexed guineas. I have an amazing husband and nephew that share my love of our birds.

    Well Hello. I just joined myself. I don't know anything about Turkeys, but the interest is definitely there. I do however have a yard full of bantams. Silkies and Cochins and they are amazing and my wife and girls are loving them. I hope for both of us we find the same passion for the little things in other members here. :)

    Hi and a warm welcome to BYC - great to have you join us [​IMG]I'm not sure where you are, but you may be able to find other BYC members in your area if you go to the "Where am i - where are you?" thread. The learning centre is a great library of information, but please feel free to ask away - we all like to help each other here. There are also fora for guineas and turkeys so you are most certainly in the right place.

    My 3 roosters are silkies, and i have 1 bantam cochin hen, a rhode island red, and a blonde americauna. Im pretty sure i have 1 male and 3 female guineas, but not positive. The chicks we are still waiting to find out what they are for sure but im pretty sure i have a white frizzle rooster. I need to take pictures of all of them soon for my poultry pal app so that next spring i can keep better track of them.
