Hello all, After reading on this forum for the last 8 months, I finally decided to join. I grew up raising chickens as a child and went about 20 years chickenless... When I bought my current home 8 months ago, it came with an established flock, coup, and fenced in chicken lot. So I jumped back in with both feet. The existing flock was 8 older red comets and one huge black sexlink rooster. I have replaced the elderly since. Now I still have the rooster and two comets. But I added, 2 splash Orps, 2 black Orps, 1 Americana, and a barred rock. Also, 2 mallards and 3 rabbits. I love keeping a little bit of everything... Picking up 5 buff Orp chicks tomorrow and 5 silver laced Wyandottes next week. It's fixing to get fun!
