    Hi to all,
    We moved to Ireland from Canada several years ago and have worked with or lived with animals most of our lives. New to poultry though. Brought 2 drakes home last April to hoover up the slugs in the veggie garden, then got a couple of layers in July. Things sort of expanded from there, we now have 26 chickens, 2 new chicks and are picking up 2 leghorns on Friday and 2 more chicks due to hatch Sunday! Besides the 3 (soon to be 5) layers, we keep nankins, sebrights, and a dual-purpose breed called Lincolnshire Buff. I like the rare breeds!
    We have an assortment of pets as well: parrots, tortoises, fish, snakes, rabbits, and a dog. Our young daughter enjoys them all. [​IMG]
    Hope to learn from the wealth of knowledge here and have some friendly conversations while I'm at it. Susan.

    Thanks for the warm welcome!
    Now I'm trying to figure out how to add a signature and avatar.
    I'm supposed to find a personality button in the profile area, but I don't seem to have a personality... [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Ah well, will leave it till later.
    Off to let my 2 little nankin chicks out for a run around the family room! [​IMG]
