    If I may take a minute to introduce myself, my name is Brenda and I live in New York with my husband, son, daughter and grandson. We have a small farm with beef steers, dairy goats, and of course, chickens and ducks. I was raised on a farm in NY, moved to PA in 2000 and had a small farm there, then moved back to NY and bought the family farm where I was raised, so I have been around chickens a long time, but I am always finding new things to learn about them! I would like to try some different breeds of chickens since I have only had the Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orpingtons, and Barrred Plymoth Rocks and am looking forward to hearing different opinions and gather information on different breeds before I get them. I look forward to getting as much information as I can so I know what to expect. Being around chickens most of my life, I may be able to help someone who is having a problem that I have encountered at one time or another. Thank you for allowing me to join and I look forward to reading posts on here.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

    I have branched out some too, added some Euskal Oiloa (Basque chickens) that are really nice birds, and just hatched out some Cream Legbars that I'm pretty excited about.

    Hello from Kansas, Brenda, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined us! I was kind of like you - had chickens in an earlier part of my life and then got back into it. I love the various breeds as well and I'm always on the lookout for one I haven't raised. I X2 the advice of sumi about checking out some other breeds! Best of luck to you in your journey!!!
