    Hello! My husband and I are new to raising chickens. This spring was our first time raising backyard chickens. We have about 20 chickens at this time. I am hoping to reach out to anyone in the Chesapeake, VA/Moyock, NC area that may know anyone that is breeding Modern Game Fowl. One of our first pairs of birds was the moderns and they are a real joy to have. Our hen is very sweet and social and she is lots of fun when we let her out of her enclosure to range for a bit. Unfortunately we lost our modern roo a couple of weeks ago. I really need to find another modern hen or roo to put with her. This breed does not do well alone and I am afraid she will decline without any companions. I can't put her with my other chickens becasue this breed is so small that most of my other chicks pick on her.

    If anyone can help we would greatly appreciate it.

    [​IMG] Once you have 20 posts you can try placing a ad in the "Buy Sell Trade" area. You might try craigslist as well.

    I don't know the difference between a modern chicken and a bale of hay...but I have no doubt someone here will be able to either help you, or point you in the right direction. :) Welcome to BYC.
