    Hi and welcome to BYC from Kenya - great to have you join us. I think you may need to send a few more posts before you will get permission to post photos - its done to try and cut down on spammers and other morons, i believe.

    All the best

    You can post pics, there are limits on other things you can do here until you have posted a bit more though, as @CTKen so nicely explained it up there [​IMG]

    Why don't you post some pics of your flock here, so we can have a look at what's going on there:

    You should also pop in at the SA thread here and say Hi

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/595787/chicken-breeders-or-folks-in-south-africa/0_30

    We got some lovely people participating on there, not least contacts for breeds!

    Welcome to Backyard chickens, so glad you joined the flock. Sumi has given you great advice - would love to take a look at your birds here or at the "What breed or gender is this,"
    thread.
