    I am Melody and my husband Bill & I have just stared raising our own chickens after we lost our beloved lone hen Consuela. I am a nurse and esthetician/makeup artist and my husband is a quality control engineer. We love animals-especially rescues and currently have 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 rabbits, a fish tank with fish and an aquatic frog, 2 Muscovy ducklings and 13 chickens-a mix of everything including 2 show quality Malaysian Seramas that were a gift to me from Consuela's chicken vet. Love this site! so much useful info and friendly people!!!

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I am so sorry you lost your hen Consuela. [​IMG] I have lost some of my hens too and I know how hard it is. [​IMG]

    But you have come to the right place for all the fun and learning! We are just bursting at the seams with knowledge.

    So make yourself at home, pull up a roost bar and join our flock! :)

    Thanks! Funny you added the "leg issue". That's what Consuela went to the vet for. Turns out it was just a sprain and a few weeks of rest and mobic and she was fine. Poor girl got locked out of her coop, roosted in a tree like she used to and we think a hawk got her =( But love our new birds-Siesta is my baby (in my avatar) my sleepy bird named in memory of Consuela <3

    How nice of your vet to gift you with show seramas. My friend has house pet chickens 2 serama hens and 1 silkie hen. Never a dull moment.

    Seramas are tiny birds with big attitudes
