New from PA

  1. I have 18 hens and 2 roosters. they are all brown egg layers. they are all chickens I got as peeps last year from tractor supply. I would like to get some ducks and a goose. I also have 26 goats, 9 barn cats, and 2 dogs. I have had chickens off and on my whole life. I'm not sure what breed of chickens I have 4 are black I know 2 are mixed because I hatched them out. and the others are red. they are all big chickens.

    Glad you're here !

    A must have for your poultry is a FIRST AID KIT for any issues that would arise. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/suggestions-for-a-first-aid-kit.1150128/)
    It's definitely better to have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

    Also, make sure your coop(s) have a proper amount of VENTILATION. (https://www.backyardchickens.com/ar...-there-and-cut-more-holes-in-your-coop.47774/) Your chickens will absolutely thank you for it!

    One last thing, if you're into gardening, feel free to join this years SEED SWAP (https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/seed-swap.1220129/)
