    Greetings folks . My wife and I are finally able to purchase a home , outside of town . It comes with a very nice permanent coop and over an acre! When I was a kid growing up my father raised Rhode Island Reds , Buckeyes , , bronze turkeys , and pea fowl . Been waiting for this opportunity to have my own :) I would like to raise some Heritage Reds , A good line of Cubalayas , and a couple of Sumatras (for show ) all starting this spring . We live in Southern West Virgina . So over the winter , I am looking to set up where and with whom to acquire the Cubalaya , and reds . Looking for the good bloodlines . Don't wanna have to get them from a hatchery . Always been a dream of sorts to help keep these guys around . Really interested in learning from you all . Have a magical day :) :):)

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Do I detect a Disney fan in our midst? My granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) loves Disney and names our hens after Disney princesses. :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. You have a magical day as well. :eek:)
