    Hello All! I live in Cicero, New York and currently own four black copper marans. I'm extremely new to rearing chickens and at times I have so many questions. I've tried asking my husband's aunt who is very familiar, but at times I'd like to ask others opinions. I first became familiar with backyard chickens when I was looking for chicken answers.

    I've had my chickens for about 4 months and they are constantly full of surprises. I work as a paralegal and am currently attending college with a major in business administration. I look forward to the opportunity to interact with those on backyard chickens. Have a great day!!

    Hi "New to chickens"

    I, too am new to the chickens. my husband and sons have just completed my chicken coop/pen and we will be getting our hens this Saturday. I am really excited about this new venture. I love farm-fresh eggs. we have been getting eggs from these hens for several years and now they are coming to us. I needed lots of advice so I went on line and found you all here! i'm so glad to meet you and I will have plenty of questions. some have already been answered by many of you....thanks for the tips. we live in a small community in southwest Kansas and will be getting 6 hens to begin with. if this works out, we will probably get more, but for now, 6 is all I think I can manage.

    it's going to be GREAT to be a part of this society!

    You could put "Black Copper Marans," in the search box and it may even pop up with a thread about them. Then you could ask breeders themselves for answers to your questions.
