Hi everyone. I've only recently discovered this site and wish I'd found it earlier. I've kept chickens for around five years and now have 14 ladies of various ages and laying abilities. Until recently I had a rooster too, but he was a nasty piece of work. Won't go into detail about what happened to him but he tasted rather nice in a curry sauce. It seems like there is something new to learn every day about keeping chickens and I'm looking forward to picking the brains of all the good people on this site. Cheers.
