    Hi guys.

    I've been googling lots of things chicken related for the past couple of weeks and this forum comes up trumps time after time so I thought it was about time to join up and say hello.

    As the title says. I'm a Brit now living in beautiful rural Bulgaria after tiring of the rat race and looking for a more natural and sustainable way of life. Which is where the chickens come in. Initially I wasn't planning on getting chickens until next year but a friend of mine wanted to re home his 5 girls so he can do some traveling, and another acquaintance recently sadly lost his wife and also wanted to re home his five little ladies. So from a conversation in bar (isn't that always the way?) I became a chicken daddy of 10 pretty much overnight. So I hastily converted one of my outbuildings into a coop and I'm kind of learning as I go.

    Anyhow, I'm sure I'll have loads of questions which I will try and post on the appropriate threads. So for now, a big hello to all.

    Hi YC.

    Another one from God's own county here too. ;-)

    I have no idea what breed the chickens are. That is probably going to be one of my first questions I've looked at a lot of pictures but they kind of look like all of them. :-D

    :woot Your from Yorkshire too! That explains the bar ;) There are a few of us from Yorkshire here, a few on the UK thread and @CTKen is also from gods own county although he's living over in Kenya now. I'm sure he will be along soon :D

    Our what breed gender section would be a great place for you to post some pics. I'm sure members there will be able to help you ID them. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    [​IMG] so glad you have joined us. Congrats on getting your flock, but sorry about your friend's loss.

    Gee sounds like I should have hung out in bars....and would have had my own flock years ago [​IMG]
    Last time I even went to a bar was in the 80's [​IMG]
