We finally finished our hen house and now hopefully will be getting the chickens moved in soon. These will be pasture chickens until we get some fencing up. I plan on getting a couple of turkeys also. Everyone keeps telling me that we need guineas because we have such a tick problem. I don't really like guineas, they are really loud and obnoxious but I might end up with a few, we'll see. At first I was going to stay with one or two breeds of chickens but, 1. there are so many I like and 2. I really like seeing the colorful variety of the flocks I have seen visiting local farms. So there is a good chance I will end up with a big variety for our own flock.
