    Hello all!

    Not new to chickens as I've been raising them for over 30 years, but new to this site.

    I currently have 13 laying hens (Wyandottes and Production Reds), a barnyard mix rooster, and couple of EE's that I've yet to figure out if they are roosters or hens (right at that age they should be crowing or laying and they are not doing either), and 26 pullets that I ordered not long ago that are brooding in my garage currently (about to come out since they are 6 weeks old). I've also recently been bitten by the incubator bug which is something I've not done in several years so I've had some mixes I've hatched along with some Black Copper Marans which are hatching today.

    I also raise goats and pigs, and turkeys are coming in the spring.

    Nice meeting everyone :)

    I need to get pictures of the crazy two EE's. One day I know they are roosters and the next I'm pretty sure they are hens. They stay to themselves a lot, won't fight the mature rooster and only run from him, and they are frightened by everything. Seems like hen behavior but who knows.

    I will try to catch up with them when the rain stops and get an updated photo.

    And thank you everyone for the welcome!
