UK Chicken fans

This is quite honestly the best chicken forum in the world.


I am in the UK and have been looking for a similar forum based here but there isnt one.  Done get me wrong, there are chicken forums, they just arent a patch on this one.


So are there many other UK users on this forum?  Please make yourselves known, i'd like to hear a more local accent too ;-)

Hi Pete,


Nice to meet you :-)


What do you have chicken wise?


My dad has been keeping chickens for years but I started about a year ago.  I have runner ducks too.  I have just started incubating this year and I am on my fourth hatch.


I am completely hooked :-)

Nice to meet you too Kirstie,  Ive just three chickens at the moment a speckledy, a golden speckledy and a copper star all hybrids, they free range in the back and ive got a green frog design plastic coop with a door timer.  I'm completely addicted and yesterday had my first egg and felt like a proud parent!

Got my pullets from  and charlotte really helpful and had a massive range of poultry, duck geese etc

Congratulations on your first egg and heres to many more!


I have two copper black marrans bought from a local small holder , a white silky and a cuckoo and white bantam which I hatched myself  and five runner ducks, four of which I hatched myself!


I borrowed a friends incubator and have gone hatch mad!  I have also recently, two days ago, hatched 10 chicks from some bantam eggs that my friend gave me.  I have no idea what to do with them all as I cant possibly keep them, but I have been looking up small holders shows and thinking that i could set up a stall maybe.


Crazy, I know, but I never expected to hatch so many!

Hi All, I live in Teesdale County Durham

I post on various UK sites which are good but this site has so many like minded members.

I love this site, it feeds my Meat bird breeding habit, ha.

all the best
