What a terrific forum. Got so caught up in it all that I raised a question before introducing myself. I am new to keeping chickens and cockerels, so will probalby be on this site alot. I had the cockerels first - 2 brahmas and 1 cochin, which previous owner did not want (she had to many) and then I "adopted" 6 rescue hens. I wish I had done this years ago!! Will be in touch again.
