    Hello,

    My name is Pepper, and I live on a small acreage in the midwest. I am super excited to start raising chickens of my own this spring/summer. I have been trying to do all the research I can and have found SO much information from this site. I love being able to read about your experiences and advice, and decided I should join in on the fun!

    That was helpful and interesting. I live in Iowa and apparently there is a chicken called the Iowa Blue that some are raising. It says it is a birchen bird. Interestingly, the breed I'm most contemplating getting started with are Blue Birchen Marans. I wonder if they are the same....

    G’Day from down under Pepper [​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]
