I'm rather new to this chicken fancying business, but have fallen head first! I'm Nicole who has just moved back to earthquake prone Christchurch in New Zealand after living in the city in the UK for the past 8 years... I have a muddle flock of hens, about 6 hybrids called 'Brown Shavers' 4 Silkies, 3 Barred Rocks, 6 Faverolles, 5 Gold Laced Wyandottes, 2 Silver Spangled Hamburgs, 4 Rhode Islands, a couple of Pekins, a light Sussex a few mutts and some young roosters... Oh and tonight I gained 2 Silver Campine hens and a roo! Also have 2 Silkie broodies on a bunch of Faverolle eggs and another on a mix of Wyandottes, frizzles, bantams including some Sebrights! I'm sure I have forgotten a couple in that bunch!!! (Oh 4 Guinea Fowl and a Peacock!) At the moment I am just gathering chickens to start breeding as my roosters come of age! Looking at breeding Silver Sebrights, Silver Spangled Hamburgs, Silver Campines, Silver Laced Wyandottes and Salmon Faverolles... Maybe Light Sussex with the intention of developing Ermine Faverolles! Having just bought a Brindsea auto incubator my flock may grow rather rapidly!!! Not bad for just taking over mum's flock of 25 egg laying chooks 4 months ago! I am refered to as the 'Mad Chicken Lady' as many of you probably are also!!!
