Hello from South Africa

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all BYC members, I'm from South Africa and I got my first 4 chickens about a month ago.
So far I'm really enjoying the learning experience of keeping chickens from young, I love how my 3 week olds come running an jump on my lap when I go close. Its warm all year round where I live so my girls will be free range.
BYC has been a great source of information for me so far, I spend a lot of time browsing the learning centre, so just a quick thanks to the BYC community, I'm glad I found you smile.png

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
