    Yes I do have another question. I am in search for Icelandic hens and would like to buy a few. Where do I ask that question for everyone to see?

    Yes go to the Icelandic thread, you can just put that in the search box and it will pop up. There are also several Icelandic breeders at "Stella's Social Club," forum - they would be able to point you in the right direction.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I have been very impressed with what I have read about Icelandic chickens. They must be the hardiest chickens on the planet. I've seriously considered getting some myself, but just haven't quite convinced myself to put out the money needed to buy and breed them. You can get in touch with breeders who sell Icelandics at the following links: http://www.davidgrote.com/id102.html, http://www.theeggfarm.com/icelandic/, http://icelandicchickens.wordpress.com/, http://www.fayrehalefarm.com/chanteclers/icelandic-chickens/, http://camelot1999.webs.com/icelandicchickens.htm, and http://www.cameronfamilyfarm.com/icelandic-chicken.html#sthash.gtj85ho5.dpbs. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting your Icelandic hens.
