    I am new to this page and forums, will be fun learning and seeing how others do it... I had chickens since before I can remember, had a break while in the military 30 years. Started my flock after retirement with a adopted Catalana hen 1-2 year old; then picked up a 1 yr Catalana rooster and Rhoad Island Red hen. (pics will follow). Threw together a makeshift coop for the out of scrap wood used nails and Philippine moxie of my Father In Law. He knows more about chickens than I ever thought there was to know. Can any one verify my adopted chickens breed as Catalana???[​IMG]

    Thank you for your years in service. I'm not familiar with that breed of chicken, though I've heard that name before. Do you live in the Philippines? I am pretty sure there is a thread dedicated to that area. Put the name in the search and hopefully it will come up. Welcome to Backyard chickens.
