    Hi, to all in England and Northern Ireland!! Nice to see that there are people from our neck of the woods!! I have four chickens not quite sure wot they are as have been told so many things but hey I dont really care what they are they are lovely and funny so thats all that matters!!
    I have 25 eggs in my incubator at the moment (first time) so I am very excited about that they are all silkies and after candling them I can see 17 which have life in them which seems pretty good odds to me!! They are all near enough half way there now and its sees a lifetime to wait for them lol!!
    What chickens have you guys got and if you dont have any what do you hope to get??
    Here are some pics of mine!!

    Not from mother England, but from the other Northampton, in Massachusetts, in the states. Oy to all of you across the pond.

    Glad we're getting more international.

    Cheerio!
