    West Coast - South Africa
    Hi everyone, my name is Marlee and we live on the West Coast of South Africa in a little town named Darling.

    My husband and I decided to give up on city life in Cape Town and move to the country. The kids are over the moon. We live on a 23 acre homestead that we are just starting from scratch .

    We recently completed our 18 square metres (194 square ft) coop and got our first 3 month old pullets today. Claire, a Buff Orpington and Mirella, a Black Australorp.

    Looking forward to talking and learning.

    Hi to byc from a little further north of you in Kenya. I hope that all your plans on your farm work out well - must be exciting times. The learning centre is a good place to start off. You can also search for the SA community - lots of members who maybe able to give you a hand also.

    Cheers
