    [​IMG] hi [​IMG]
    I'm Laurie, soon I'll be going overseas to marry my Fiance [​IMG] and we will be living with his family until we can get him a visa so we can move back to the USA. I've never lived on a farm or had farm animals before so this will be fun, his family has sheep, chickens, ducks, turkeys, and a cow. [​IMG]

    He said I can have my own chickens and a little sheep when I get there. [​IMG] And after we move back here I was thinking of getting some EEs and Orpingtons and maybe Silkies. I like the colored eggs and the Orpingtons are pretty - nice round chickens.

    When I get there I'll have to post pics of the chickens to see what kind they are, though I'm expecting they may all be mutt chickens.

    So, Hi everyone [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Iraqi Kurdistan. It is very safe there unlike the rest of Iraq. My Fiance is Kurdish and they keep their part of the country very secure.

    I haven't asked what kind of chickens they have there because I have a feeling I'll get the same answer as when I asked what kind of sheep they have. "I don't know, regular sheep" [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What a wonderful experience. You will have to take a lot of pictures & let us know the way they raise & care for their animals.
    I, for one would be very interested in other customs.

    I'll be going in two weeks [​IMG]

    I'm taking my digital camera and my Honey has a computer w/ internet so I'll try to post purebred Iraqi Chicken pics for everyone [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I keep thinking they will be watching me try to play with the chickens and wonder if we have any chickens here in America. "crazy american never seen a chicken before?" [​IMG]

    So far I'm just looking around here admiring everyone's birds and learning stuff.
  8. welcome, we will be very interested in the kind of chickens they have over there. Good luck.
