Hi, my name's Matt. I've had chickens ever since I was little, and have ALWAYS loved having them around. They are just so... Interesting, to say the least. They're also pretty darn easy to take care of, in my opinion. I'm not new to the chicken scene, but I do enjoy these types of forums. During the Summer I spent a lot of time on Backyard Chickens forum (Just lurking, never had the need to make an account), and I am on almost all of the chicken facebook groups. I may not be new, but as I always say, there's always more you can learn. I currently have 10 adult guineas, all different varieties, and 11 week old keets that are heavily protected by all but two of the adult guineas. I have one angry Tom turkey. He's a pretty bird, but not exactly nice. He chases everyone, excluding myself. So he's in bird jail (A dog kennel) at the moment, but I do spoil him by giving him all of the table scraps. I have six Chinese geese, two whites and four grays. Only one of them is a Goose though, so the Ganders all like to follow her around. Which reminds me that I need to get rid of some of those Ganders. I'm not sure how many ducks I have anymore. My ducks are all free-range, so they like to spend their time in the cow/horse pastures, so that's where they usually lay their nests. I think in the Spring/Summer my Ducks all went out to make their nests and the Coyotes got 'em. =/ Got a bunch of Drakes wandering around the farm yard though, about 10 of them. As for chickens, I currently have 28 adult chickens, and 20 chicks that I hatched out this Spring/Summer. I have various breeds, and WAY too many roosters. I didn't want to send them down to an auction house, but I'm thinking I might have to before Winter comes along. So, that's all about me and my flock. I look forward to getting to know some of the members of this forum.
