Hi, I'm a small backyard breeder. I'm starting to change my laying for eggs hobby to hatching rare and endangered breeds. I will still be keeping my girls for eggs since they are all pets now with names all 35 of them. My wife and I started with 8 chicks as pets only 18 months ago and here we are now chickens everywhere, with a brooding hen on 12 eggs and 3 incubators full. lol We are excited to be part of BYC. And would love to hear from those who are raising rare and endangered breeds also. We are in New Port Richey, Fl and would love to find lovers of rare and endangered breeds in are area.
