    I'm pretty new to chickens! I grew up in the Chicago suburbs. moved to MN in 2005.

    I have a couple serama's and a couple I don't know what. I lost the rooster and am looking for suggestions on replacing him.

    other hobbies: I love to dig in the dirt, pull weeds, so I'll say gardening, mostly flowers. I have a pretty fair assortment of indoor plants.

    I love dogs, especially Yorkies!

    I found BYC when I googled Hmong black meat chicken. it was just a couple weeks ago.

    What I think I have found out so far: these are probably a mix of pak lay Hmong with silkie.

    If I can't find a Hmong rooster I will get a silkie roo!

    Lovely photos in your post, Lynda.

    Where are you in northern Minnesota? People think it a bit odd that we vacation in the Grand Marais-Boundary Waters area EVERY year, but we love it up there.

    On the other hand, gardening could be a bit challenging. Some of our northern friends bemoan their rocky soil and short growing season.

    Welcome to the group and good luck finding the right rooster!
