New to BYC but 6yrs of keeping chickens !

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, yes, new here, but been keeping these wonderful creatures for over 6yrs.......the highs and lows !

Now on chickens numbers 7,8,9 & 10. Lost 3 and had to retire 3 to a friends farm when I was diagnosed with cancer in 2013 and we just couldn't give them the time and love..........

Constantly learning and love all the different characters and habits they have !!

Now have a Brown Speckledy, Blackrock, and due to a sad death we have this week introduced two newbies at P.O.L. - a Light Sussex and a beautiful Grey Speckledy !  (Dixie, Zoe, Honey & Connie.......anyone guess the 'theme' ??).

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
