    Hello! I am a new chicken enthusiast and very much looking forward to talking with others that share my sickness..er..excitement for the feathery friends ;)

    After a couple of random pickings from a farm store that had terribly accurate 50/50 gender ratio despite being labeled pullets (2 black Australorps hen, 1 Welsummer hen, 2 "Americauna" roos, and 1 RIR roo) I decided I wanted the shiny toy, and got me some breeding stock/show quality BBS Marans.

    At this point I have no intention of showing, but I love the idea of working to keep up with some quality standards and make it a long term goal. Very much looking forward to watching my baby bird brains grow up. And also super excited to find others that understand my most recent vice!

    Wish you the very best of luck with your project, you very well may decide you would like to show. Nothing wrong with producing the very best of a breed possible.
