Just an introduction as I'm new on this site. We live in Hawke's Bay, on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand.
We have 8 free range hens - all different kinds, all named, all pets. We didn't intend to have 8, but I guess we are softies and our flock just grew as we accepted other people's unwanted hens. We also have 2 muscovy ducks who live a very privileged life too.
I actually joined this site hoping that someone can offer ideas on how to help our limping chicken who has a split spur. I've posted this in the 'injuries and cures' section, if you think you might be able to help.
