I started raising chickens in NY when I was back in grade-school for a hobby but I stopped after I joined the Marines after High School (2005). I wasn't able to keep any due to the transient lifestyle, but I've been getting back into it again. It's such a fun and relaxing hobby for me so i'm addicted to it again. I currently live in Yountville, CA and I have 3 Jersey Black Giants and 6 silkies. I've been building a separate coop for game fowl which I'm starting to get set up for birds this spring. I've been looking at Malays recently and I've found this board to be a great source of info on game fowl and Malays. Thanks for reading. Pete.
