Hi! I’ve had chickens most of my life but have never really KNOWN how to raise chickens. I sold my dream flock at the beginning of the year and am ready to get a few more hens for fresh eggs. We are currently buying the lumber to build a new coop/tractor. I joined a goat forum (the goat spot, awesome place) and have learned sooo much from it that I thought I would try joining here to learn more about chickens and how to raise them. I have an incubator full of guinea eggs from the local flock laying in my garden (I don’t want the flock to get bigger, they’re a big enough pain as it is. My plan is to sell the keets). I also have three young Blue Slate turkeys in the old coop. We plan to butcher one tom for thanksgiving, and allow the other two birds to breed and build a nest before we butcher the second. We also raise Nigerian goats, have a dog and two cats.
