    I'm very proud to be a member of BYC. Love the questions and comments. I have been around or had chickens as long as I can remember. I am retired now but still love my birds. I have around 100 chickens of several breeds. I have 26 golden sexlinks for my laying hens. They are the best layers I've ever had and are very good mothers as well. I also have bantams. Silver sebrights, golden sebrights, Japanese black tailed, white and red silkies, frizzles, cochans and some very small ones that I'm not sure the breed. I also have guineas, turkeys, 3 goats, 4 cats and 1 dog. Amazingly they get along very well. I have eggs in an incubator hatching as I write. Thank you for having me. Bantie Barb

    Welcome to the BYC Flock. Maybe your very small ones are Seramas, a Malaysian breed
    developed to be house pets.
