    It's been well over a year since I last logged in here. I doubt anyone remembers me, but I used to be quite active.
    When I first joined, we had five gold sex link hens and about 25 Ameracauna/EE's. We're now down to one gold sex link hen (one of them died earlier today after a long time of not eating well, etc. [​IMG] ), 15 EE hens, and one EE rooster.
    However, yesterday we ordered a lot of new additions, and I'm extremely excited! That's mostly why I decided to start checking in here once more. =]
    Here's a list of the birds we will be getting towards the beginning of May from McMurray Hatchery:

    2 Narragansett turkeys
    10 Giant White turkeys
    8 Broad Breasted Bronze turkeys
    (20 turkey poults)

    2 Cuckoo Maran st. run
    2 Delaware females
    2 Lakenvelder females
    2 Dominique females
    2 Silver Spangled Hamburg females
    2 Speckled Sussex females
    2 Golden Laced Wyandotte females
    2 Black Giant females
    4 Rhode Island Red females
    3 Red Star females
    3 Black Star Females
    and one free rare chick [​IMG]
    (27 day old chicks)

    I'm quite excited! We're going to give away/sell 10 or 15 of the chicks, and keeping all the turkey poults.
    I would REALLY love comments about the breeds we picked out, and especially advice about the turkeys, as that's a new adventure for us, so I'm a little worried. We hope to have them ready by November and December.

    I'm so glad to be back!

    Welcome back!

    I haven't been around long enough to remember you, but am looking forward to your posts. You must have acquired a lot of knowledge with that many birds running around.
