    Welcome Matt. There are more of us from Indiana on this board and BYC EZ. Keep a watch out for the Indiana ChickenStock. It is a great way to meet a bunch of great people from the board, eat great food & swap chickens.

    Matt, if you go to the BYC Home page there is a link to the BYC EZ when you click on message board.. Also when you get there look for ChickenStock. There are many posts there that show pics & you will get a better idea. Indiana's is usually in May on the Memorial Day weekend. Don't know for sure about this years.

    I'm with you Carole. I am already working on something to bring. And thinking on what food item I am going to tackle this year. It is always great to see eveyone. I hear there will be even more this year.

    Hi

    Edited 1-19-08. I was considering moving to Indiana last spring, but moved to Kansas instead.

    The beautiful breeds of chickens I raise are S.C. Light Brown Leghorns, Exchequer Leghorns, and Rhode Island Reds. I will ship fertile eggs. Email me for prices and pics.
