    Hi all.
    I think I am gone chicken mad! :D
    I started off 6 years ago with laying hens untill I started buying breeding hens.
    I started off last year with 3 different breeds barbu d'Anver,silkie and cream legbar.
    I bred them this year and successfully showing them.
    Then in August I added another 2 breeds to my breeding chickens Gold partridge pekin bantam, coronation Sussex.
    I said I wasn't getting anymore untill I decided I wanted bantam buff orpingtons.
    I have some money but not entirely enough so I decided I am selling my PlayStation 4 to pay for them.
    I think I am gone mad :p
    In the past year and a half I have spent €1000 ($1,045)on chickens and coops etc.
    I don't mind though as I get great enjoyment out of them they are show quality
    So I enjoy going to shows and I enjoy breeding them.
    I do get a small amount of money back but that only pays for feed.
    I wish I was old enough to get a job lol.
    Thanks for reading
    Fionn.
