    sumatrass Chillin' With My Peeps

    Hello I wanted to introduce myself, my name is Manny and I live in southern California. Its my first time raising chickens, I build my own coop its an 8x8x4 divided in half, I have a total of 10 chickens I started with 3 Plymouth Rock, 2 road island reds, and then decide to get Sumatra's I love everything about these birds I have 3 baby chicks that i hatched out of 8 eggs (first time hatching with incubator) they are doing great! Also i became interested in the Oriental Gamefowl breed I started looking at shamos then asils and finally decided on Thai!!! I have 2 right now one that im taking care of for a friend and I am planing on getting 3 more from Orientalbreeder here on BYC!
