    Hi guys, I’m Kat and I’m new to the forums and still pretty new to poultry. I got my first birds about a month and a half ago and it’s been a blast so far! Went for four and left with seven chicks, two ducklings, and a goose so I learned that chicken math right away. I later added a few more chicks so I’m up to ten now but always looking to add more interesting breeds to the mix. I’ll also be adding three more ducks so as you can see I have no self control. It’s been great though (besides almost causing my house to burn down from a heat lamp but all’s well that ends well) and I hope to learn a lot from you guys! Thanks!

    Oh gosh, thank you! It’s a little confusing for a first timer so I’m glad to see there’s a guide lol.
