(1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
We currently raise Lady Amherst pheasants (which we love) and are expanding into chickens and ducks.

(2) How many chickens do you have right now?
6 LA pheasants (3 MA, 3 FE)
4 chickens (all hens, 1 sexlink, 1 golden laced wyandotte, 1 olive egger, 1 cuckoo maran; currently juveniles)

(3) What breeds do you have?
see above

(4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
internet research

(5) What are some of your other hobbies?
meadmaking, beekeeping, outdoors (camping etc.), gardening/landscaping

We are currently housing chickens and pheasants in separate aviaries (chickens also have a coop) - but would love to hear/read people's trials and errors on raising mixed flocks!

G'Day from down under GirlHusband :frow Welcome!

I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

If you would like to share Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)

Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

Howdy:welcome:frow Happy:ya to have you join the family. Enjoy your time here at BYC! :)
Pheasants and chickens don't mix. Chickens have diseases that they can tolerate but will kill a pheasant. Raising them together is a "ticking time bomb"! BIOSECURITY is a Priority when raising pheasants.
Yeah - the pheasants and chickens will be in separate aviaries. Ducks with chickens, and pheasants I'm looking at with quail.

Welcome neighbor! :frow
You’re pheasants are beautiful.
We live just a little northwest of Boise in Emmett.
We currently have 5 adult chickens (4 pullets & a bantam roo) and we just purchased 8 chicks two days ago.
6 chicks are Naked Necks and 2 are bantams- looks like 1 partridge silkie and a mottled Cochin.
I hope you enjoy your birds and our online community here. :thumbsup
