    Hello Everyone at BYC

    I am new to this site but am having load of fun reading all the different Threads on all of the different areas of trying to raise different types of fowl.

    my point of interest is along the breed of the Dark Brahma birds. a person in my location here in SC gave me 5 of these wonderful ladies. and hav gotten very close and friendly. They are like my little personal friend pets. I can feed them out of my hand some will let me pet/stroke there feathers. but alas a pesky fox has been taking my ladies while I try to catch it. but r she is very smart.

    At this time I am looking for a breeder here in South Carolina hat may have some chicks for sale so that I could raise.

    so any information would be great.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Unfortunately I'm all the way out here in Cali so I can't help you much finding a breeder, but good luck anyways. DBs are lovely birds.

    Please post on the predator threads so you don't lose any more of your lovely ladies. It's NOT inevitable, you can safeguard your birds.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! I'm sorry to hear your losing your birds to a fox. I've experienced an attack myself and sure is not nice. Are your birds in a secure run or out free ranging when they are taken? Keeping them secure would be most helpful in stopping your losses.

    Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC :frow
