    Hello there friends and fellow fowl enthusiasts! I'm a new member on here and look forward to giving and receiving advice on birds from those of you who have had a lot of years raising and breeding birds. I am from Arkansas and have been living here since September of 2009, before moving down here in search of more land to raise my birds, I use to live in a little town called Ephrata in southeast Pennsylvania. I've been raising chickens since the age of 12 and have had a lot of different breeds in my flock since I first started but one of my favorites are specifically Thai Game Fowls. Ever since I got my hands on my very first pair of TGF when I was 14, I have been in love with them and have been raising them ever since. I am by no means an expert and still have a lot I still need to learn but I'm eager to share my knowledge with those who are interested in this particular breed. I look forward to sharing my experiences with all those who have a desire for this breed.

    Welcome to BYC. There used to be a poultry show in Ephrata that I attended several times.

    You could try putting "Thai game fowl," in the searchbox and see what comes up.

    Make yourself at home here, it's nice to have you join us.

    If you wouldn't mind sharing a photo or two of your TGF, I'd like to see them! It's always interesting to see other members birds.

    I basically grew up in Ephrata but I don't think I have ever heard of a poultry show there. I know that every Friday and occasionally on Saturdays they would have a flea market at the Green Dragon where they would sell and auction off animals and birds if that's what you mean.

    I will post up my flock as soon as I can. Lately I've been working a lot and it seems like my photos don't upload properly but I will as soon as get the chance

    There can be a little lag time on being able to post photos when you first start here on BYC. Maybe it will work the next time you try. Looking forward to seeing them!

    Can anyone tell me how I can include pictures on my posts? I don't see any option that allows me to attach photos when I'm writing a post. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
