    Hi everyone.
    I'm new to keeping chickens, I'm having lots of fun already and am learning a lot!

    These are my chickens:

    I've built the run extension myself from recycled timber. It's maybe overkill and almost bear proof, but I love my little hens!

    Welcome and compliments on your lovely hens! Is it still green in England? I understood that you were having early winter weather much as we are in the midwest of America. We had only 2 inches of snow, but huge wind blew it up into 4 foot drifts. Our 25 hens were not very happy! Are you near the sea? I noticed the heavy rope woven through your trees... ~G

    We had a heavy snow for about ten days a week or so back. I live in the south east which tends to be warmer (further away from the Atlantic and as south as it gets haha!) I live in Surrey in a very green area close to Guildford in a cluster of villages called Normandy, Wanborough, Puttenham and Compton, it's beautiful.

    My chickens are baby White Star, similar to a White Leghorn but an off shoot... Can anyone tell me more about them?
