Hi, myself and my family are familiar with BTC, but this is our first time registering! We are in northern CA, and raise exhibition birds for show, laying birds just for eggs, and meat birds. We are involved in both FFA and 4H. We are looking forward to this awesoeme resource! --PC (PakehaCherie) Hi again, I was putting in an profile pic, and came back to read all of the "welcomes". Thank you to everyone! We have several breeds (had even more before, but narrowed it down to what we liked best) including the one pictured, a Buff Laced Bantam Polish (bearded). My son raises/breeds both the straight and Frizzled-feathered varieties. We also have a laying flock made of Barred Rocks, Americanas, and some other feed-store hens. I raise Bantam Dutch (Blue Light Browns) and my husband is partial to ducks and Black Copper Marans.
