    Hello all! I am Amber of Hodgden farms. I have been raising chickens for the most part of my last 20 years. I have usually raised traditional breeds, such as Rhode island reds (my favorite), black Australorps, and white rocks. I have chosen to now raise more ornamental breeds for breeding and showing. I want to get more for eggs, but I don't have the room I once had for chickens. Right now I have black, white, and partridge silkies. I still have a large breed, which are my babies. I have one gorgeous Columbian Wyandotte rooster and his two ladies. I am considering some Ayam cemanis in the near future. Any feedback on this thought would be great! I have been reading threads from this website for quite some time, and I look forward to being a part of future discussions.

    Greetings from Kansas, Amber, and [​IMG]! It's great to have you in our community! I am not the person to ask with either of those two breeds as I've never raised them - by there are a fair number of folks on BYC who do. Find their threads in the Breeds Forum here:
    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!! [​IMG]

    Thank you for joining us at Backyard chickens. Ayam Cemani are quite popular now but, very costly.

    G’Day from down under hodgdenfarms [​IMG] Welcome!

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
