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!
