    I am a new member. I live in Kyushu, Japan, and have had chickens now for two or three years. Currently I have about 60 birds (far too many, I know). I have 14 Barred Plymouth Rocks (the Japanese have tinkered with this breed, so perhaps I should use quotation marks); 13 Boris Browns (the Japanese name for the red sex-link ISA Brown), half a dozen Araucanas, lots of Silkies, and some odds and ends (two Nagoya Kochin, for instance).

    I am currently searching for some Rhode Island Red (probably found some) and Sussex chickens (probably found some again), as well as Barnevelder, Buff Orpington, Marans, Penedesenca, Welsummer, and Wyandotte chickens. Not sure how much luck I am going to have with any of those - anyone in Japan with access to any of these?

    We live on a farm high up in the mountains. It is a lovely part of the world.

    I have used this site for quite some time now, and would like to use this opportunity to thank everyone for their contributions.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great that you have joined us. Nobody here on BYC is going to think you have too many chickens - its not in our vocabulary [​IMG] Maybe type "Japan" in the search box and see what pops up - I think there are a few members from Japan here.

    Good luck with your breed hunt

    G’Day from down under TsukaharaNohen [​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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Will do! We have had heavy snowfall today, but in a day or two I'll get the camera out and try to get some nice pictures.
