Hello everyone! It was great to accidentially stumble into your forum while googling. We have about a hundred chickens at present, give or take a few. . .Included in that number are Malays, Cornish(NOT crosses), Jersey Giants, Buckeyes, Turkens, Americanas, Silkies, and various assorted "barnies". We also have Black Swans, six varieties of geese, several varieties of ducks, two varieties of peafowl, several varieties of turkeys, multiple colors of helmeted guinea fowl, quail, and three dogs, five cats, ten rabbits, sheep, goats, horses and a mule. I'd imagine that you can see my "bird addiction" is not brand new (it does take awhile to accumulate decent numbers ). This latest and most out-of-control phase of my "addiction" is about seven years along now. I have NEVER belonged to a forum before so I've been reading as much of the info as possible to learn the rules. I'm always looking for new information on my birds as they like to be as confounding as possible.
