    Hi there!! We've been pondering for a while now about keeping a few chickens in our back yard and have discovered this site and the wealth of knowledge it provides!! We're researching chicken breeds at the minute - up on our list is having one that our 8 year old daughter will be able to be friends with... And also one that our friendly neighbours won't get annoyed about! We have made a start on their home and we've had some great tips from the forum. It's quite addictive!!!!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. My wife and I visited Ireland for our 37th wedding anniversary and loved your beautiful countryside. Raising chickens is a wonderful experience for children. My granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) loves our chickens. Breeds that have a well deserved reputation for being friendly, calm, and gentle, include Australorps, Orpingtons, Brahmas, Cochins, and Sussex. Our children made lap pets of all of these breeds. If eggs are a priority, Australorps are the best layers on this list. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
