    Hi everyone,

    For a while I was fascinated by the postings on BackYard Chickens.
    Then, I decided to join as a member, but, somehow the system didn't allow me to register.
    But thanks to the kind help of "The BackYard Chickens Team", here I am!!!

    I am a member joining from Korea.
    I work at a university. I studied in United States more than 20 years ago, for my Master and Ph.D in Gainesville, Florida.

    Little more than a year ago, I started raising chickens at my weekend farm as a hobby.
    For a while I went crazy with some of the rare breeds that are available on the Korean Chicken site, I hatched eggs in my office more than ten times. Some students came by to see the new born chicks. I enjoyed so many days of hard work, building chicken houses inside the green house of my farm. Slowly I have become less crazy by the fancy breeds.

    I currently have a few Ameraucanas, Nagoya Cochins (Japanese breed), Gold CooCoo Marans (French breed, I hear), Blue Egg Laying Chickens (Korean version of Eastegger?), and currently in the process of hatching original Korean chicken in my office.

    Although there are limits on what I can do or contribute by being a global member, I thought, it could still be interesting experience.
    Hope it does turn out to be interesting :)

    You can call be James, by adopted American Name.

    Hi James! One of the fun things about BYC is getting the chance to 'meet' members from all over the world so you'll fit in just fine...all that's required really is an interest in poultry.

    I'd love to see photos of some of your birds, always interesting to see other member's flocks. And if you're interested, the New Year Day Hatchalong has just started, maybe you'd like to participate? The link to it is in my signature line at the bottom of my post.

    See you around!

    G’Day from down under sgjameslee [​IMG] Welcome!

    I agree that location is definitely not a hindrance on BYC; except maybe that when we are up and about, everyone else is sleeping [​IMG]

    I hope you enjoy BYC; not only is it overflowing with lots of useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures about chickens, turkeys, duck, quail, Peas and pretty much any other feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
