Great website, I already read some of the article since 2 years ago, now after several succes and having 150 chickens right now with 2 chicken coop with 400 sqf each but we do let the free range, I think I should say thanks [​IMG]to all of you who post great articles about raising chickens espeacially [​IMG]sallysunshine with lots of info about hatching eggs.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you. One of my favorite breeds originates in Malaysia - the Serama bantam. Very neat fowls.

    Thanks CuzChickens, yeah, that is a lot of chickens. My parents always keep for 20 to 25 chickens. Now my family and I try to hit our cap maybe 400 to 600 chickens if that possible. if that happen, maybe flies gonna be a big problem.

    Thanks CTKen, that space is not our own land, we live near to the city, but we have space between our house and river(can I call it backyard?), so we use it for gardening and stuff. I think it is 3 to 4 acre, maybe more but we use what we need, not more than that. I will share the set up on our incubators after this. 2 or 3 years before I keep reading all post regarding hatching and raising chicks n now I can proud what my family and I heading to.

    Thanks QueenMisha, Nice breed but I dont keep any serama bantam. very nice, beatiful and quite expensive breed if they really raise properly. but we have what we call "Ayam Kampung". I dont know if there is proper name for this kind of breed. Can you guys tell me if there is any name for this breed? alraedy google it but it give me science term.

    Thanks drumstick diva, actually we have 20-25 laying hens and only 2 rooster, but not every single of them laying egg everyday, but we always put eggs that we collect in the incu every single week, pretty much about 25 to 35 egg per batch. this breed that I have maybe laying 150 to 170 egg per year, so this is not a good layer. but we keep what we have right now.

    I googled "Ayam Kapung" - beautiful birds! I'd say that's about as close to a proper name as you would get for them, though. They look distinctly gamefowl in their type (shape) - many village and landrace chickens around the world will show a gamefowl type, because it's the most suited to a natural environment with less human interference. Their egg production sounds about right for a gamefowl too! :lol:
