Just joined today but have been using the site for information for the last few months. I've had chickens on my mind for many years as a form of pest control, fertiliser and eggs in my small permaculture suburban garden but needed to solve a number of problems in how to care for them whilst I travel, which I do regularly for up to a week at a time. Needless to say I have now solved all the problems and am the proud owner of two Belgian D'Uccle which I have only had for a week but have just started free ranging in my courtyard orchard. I have also built a pretty special chicken tractor based on a lot of ideas from this site and a few ideas of my own. I hope to get some information on Belgian D' Uccle and perhaps some other breeds whilst sharing some of my ideas.
