    Hi - we're based in south east england and have had hens for about 6 months - after a few ups and downs (mainly due to incorrect sexing) we have just had our first eggs and are really enjoying the entertainment of our new lawn ornaments and pets.

    Here are Tikka, Bhajii, Korma and Pilau, enjoying a beef tomato.

    Hi :welcome from Yorkshire UK

    Glad you could join the flock! Congratulations on your first egg :celebrate Finding those little treasures is fantastic and never gets boring!! I have a little pullet who has just started laying again after a little break from when she first started and it was so exciting finding her egg especially as my polish are not laying at the moment. I love your pic and they are some lovely birds you have there.
    Have you popped by the UK thread? The link is in my signature, there may be other keepers near to you.

    Wishing you the very best of luck with your flock in the future. Enjoy BYC :frow
