    I have a variety, kind of one thing leads to another. Silkies, welsummers and polish chickens, a pair of Toulouse geese and a pair of blue slate turkeys. I hope to learn more about keeping them all happy and healthy.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! What a wonderful mixed flock you have there, that really is a bit of everything! I too found that keeping chickens can make things lead to another. I started with 2 hybrids at first and at my most I have had 50 birds. I've reduced things again now and have just mainly polish.

    Good luck for the future and enjoy your time here on BYC :frow

    Greetings from Kansas, flockahappygoat, and [​IMG]! Happy you joined our community! Yes, lots of us have had similar experiences of one type of critter leading to a whole farm of them. I started with a few chickens and that has mushroomed to ducks, geese, guineas, turkeys, and pigs! [​IMG] Can goats really be far behind? [​IMG] BYC has forums for all of your pursuits! You can locate the Geese and Turkey Forums here:
    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!! [​IMG]

    They say chickens are the gateway drug to turkeys, ducks, geese, swans, emus, cattle etc. Gee they blame chickens for everything [​IMG] THANK YOU for joining us at Backyard chickens.

    What a wonderful mix of poultry you have! Now you just need to add ducks, guineas, peafowl... And now you know, you've fallen in with a bunch of enablers.

    G’Day from down under flockahappygoat [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
