    Hi there ,

    I'm Alice, with a fiancé and two beautiful daughters and our new addition to our family is a light Sussex hen which literally charged into our garden last week while I hung washing and the children played.
    We are giving Elsa the chicken (named by our daughter) her forever home unless an owner comes forward.

    This is our first chicken and I look forward to learning more and hearing what everyone has to say [​IMG]

    I also look forward to seeing if Elsa lays eggs at some point, this would be a huge bonus as dippy eggs are a regular here in our house.

    Take care!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! That's quite an introduction there for you to chicken keeping! Elsa looks pretty young right now but nothing too male jumps out at me so there is every chance you will get eggs. If you could get some other pics of Elsa you can post in our what breed gender section ~

    Getting a friend for Elsa would be great as they are flock animals and do enjoy company of their own kind.
    Wishing you the very best of luck for the future and enjoy your time here on BYC :frow

    I guess Elsa adopted you! I agree with Yorkshire Coop, 2 or 3 chicken friends would be good for her.

    Have fun and thanks for joining us!

    Greetings from Kansas, Alice, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined our flock! I'm in agreement with getting Elsa a flock mate or two - she'll be a happier bird. Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!! [​IMG]

    Nice to meet you Alice, I remember seeing Elsa, on the "what breed or gender thread."

    G’Day from down under Alice [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sounds like Elsa found you [​IMG]

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
