    4 newer chicks

    and 11 Ducks

    The chickens are

    2 Light Brahmas

    4 RI Reds

    2 Red Sex Links

    2 black Sex links

    2 Silver Wyandotes

    and a few more I cant remember off hand

    I would have to look at my notes

    I am looking at getting some americaunas like around 26 or so of them for the Egg colors for the kids to be all excited about when they see them. I have the room for expansion and eventually want to make another coop for Gambel and Bobwhite quail and maybe a few pheasants.

    then they can eat green eggs and ham :p sam I am
