No I'm just a glutton for punishment... or just mental perhaps?

Welcome to the forum Gem !
The shamo's look interesting, I have to admit to being a poultry virgin - shame on me, but there are plans afoot to change that, sometime............................
I can't believe with all the animals you've got that you've not been able to sneek a couple of pigs into the equation  ;) Be warned - they're highly addictive (and well worth getting)
Look forward to hearing more from you  ;D

shamos can be troublesome! they are purely ornamental as they only lay about 80-100 eggs a year, my rooster will kill any small fowl including pullets and bantams so im only able to keep him with hens that are rhode island red size or bigger im having to keep his OH in a broody coop with her chick inside the main run because they keep fighting (shes protecting the chick)
on the up side they are stunning birds and the hens are the best mothers! better than any other hen, they would fight to the death to protect their chicks!
