Hello, I'm an American living in Austria (for the past 12 years). 3 years ago we bought a little house with a teeny yard - and I could finally have chickens! I have bantam Bielefelders (a German auto-sexing breed), 7 hens and a roo, and three silkie hens in buff, partridge and black. They look really nice all together. The buff silkie went broody this spring and hatched out one Bielefelder pullet, and I was unbelievably thrilled. I also raise rabbits for meat, and there's a few kids running around here too. I'm looking forward to taking part in this great forum!
