Hey all, My name is Danny. I'm a volunteer in Panama. I live in a beautiful seaside farming village in the northwestern part of the country. Ever since arriving here, I knew that I wanted the experience of raising some egg-laying hens. Now I finally found some (even though one might be a rooster), and we are living happily ever after for the remainder of my service here (a little over a year left). So I'm completely new to chickens, but I am doing a good job of meeting their basic needs: dry, warm shelter, sunlight, water and space. I have three golden comets, and they all have names from the Ngäbe (no-bay) language. The one with the most red on her is yulu, which means mahogany. The one with the most white is named Kenmu, which means fish hawk. And the one in-between is named kiko, which is "to fly" in the past tense. My username means "a resting place." So there it is. I also posted in the sexing forum to see if Kenmu is a rooster or not. Additionally, I post weekly about my Peace Corps experience at isthmus2isthmus.wordpress.com. Hope to learn a lot!
