    After growing up helping my Nan in Wales with her chickens, ducks, goats etc. I thought it is time I introduced my young girls to the joys of keeping chickens.

    So we cleared a space at the top of the garden and built a hen house (a bigger run will come on within the next few days) then off to the poultry farm we went, we chose hybrids over rare breeds as I wanted my girls to have more docile chicken (don't hate me LOL)

    So we bought:

    1 x White Sussex
    1 x Blue Belle
    1 x Ranger
    1 x Cou Cou
    2 x Amber Star

    I look forward to enjoying this site & becoming an active member

    It's a cuckoo marans based hybrid - looks very much like a cuckoo marans.
