    Hi guys, First post from me and just wanted to say hello.

    Getting four girls from a rescue at the end of the month so am just having a good read on here to see what all you experienced guys do.

    Seems to be a massive American croud on here - any other uk members?

    Will carry on reading now [​IMG]

    Thank you

    We travelled for five hours over this weekend to pick up a kennel that we are going to convert. It was really hard work but we've put it all back together in our garden and managed to utilise a 4ft rabbit hutch, stripping it down to the frame to reuse, partitioned up into nests for them.

    I can't wait until our girls come to us - just hate the thought that they are currently living in a tiny uncomfortable box until they can be rescued......

    I think you will find four or five other UK members around.
    A woman I 'met' on a poultry forum went on a rescue run a couple of weeks ago.

    The are actually a fair number from the UK. Just post on the Where Am I section, or post something with UK in the title and I've no doubt you'll find each other.
