    Hi there,

    I've been learning a lot from BYC for a while now, so I finally decided to register.

    I am from the UAE, precisely from the capital city of Abu Dhabi (an hour and half drive from Dubai).

    I've started raising poultry after buying 15 Buff Cochin Chicks and then got half a dozen mixed color Brahamas and I've been raising Brahmas for 2 years now and recently acquired a pair of Sultans.

    Its been a challenge raising Brahmas and Cochins in the Summer time, as its very normal for the temperature to reach above 113 degrees in August and September. For those of you who've been to Dubai in the Summer time would know. ;)

    I've joined BYC because I am keen to learn and understand the genetics behind improving my flock of Brahmas and to produce Show Quality birds.

    Here's a photo of a sample of my home flock.

    Appreciate your honest opinion.

    Thank you.
