Hey all! I've watched this site for awhile, looking for info and advice, and finally decided to join in! I've kept poultry for years, ducks, a rather moody goose, chickens, pigeons, and a short adventure with button quail, but I have mainly raised chickens! I've also worked with other breeds of poultry briefly and hope to to branch out into turkeys and maybe some other species this year. At the moment I have a two large flocks of chickens, which consist of my laying birds and then my bantams. In my bantam flock I have a large number of Modern games, some Old English, serama's, a blue silkie hen and her two bitties, a Cornish hen, some mystery breeds, etc. My layer flock oh geeze, let me think, white and barred rocks, white leghorns, a New Hampshire red, a barnyard mix, SL wyandotte, red polish, Delaware, Speckled Sussex, a full sized modern game hen, and a red hen, either a RIR or a red star don't remember which.. I'm also caring for a friends flocks of birds he rescued this past month, nine roosters and twenty hens, which has been crazy. While I'm young I've had a lot of experience with poultry (or so I think ) but I'm really looking forward to learning more from everyone here and getting to know you all!!! So glad to be here!!!
