    Hi all BYC members, I'm from South Africa and I got my first 4 chickens about a month ago.
    So far I'm really enjoying the learning experience of keeping chickens from young, I love how my 3 week olds come running an jump on my lap when I go close. Its warm all year round where I live so my girls will be free range.
    BYC has been a great source of information for me so far, I spend a lot of time browsing the learning centre, so just a quick thanks to the BYC community, I'm glad I found you :) [​IMG]
