    Hi guys and girls! My name is Gregory. Im a College student. I've been keeping chickens and ducks before I could remember. I raise mostly Thai and Ga noi birds. I also keep indian blue peacocks and red golden pheasants. Im the only one of friends who keeps them and I often feel weird that I keep chickens and what not lol

    Welcome.

    Don't feel "weird" that you enjoy your chickens. Be happy that you are passionate about something and that you are making a difference. You are doing more by working with rare breeds to preserve and promote them than just being a casual chicken keeper.

    Personally I know nothing about Thai and Ga noi chickens. Give us the cliffnote lesson on the breeds.

    Welcome to BYC - perhaps those who do not keep poultry are the weird ones. [​IMG]

    I agree with sourland, you aren't weird. People who are only interested in themselves are the weird ones.
