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!!!!
