    Hello everyone...ill go generic and start on my questions :B

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Yes we r new to chickens..we've had our girls for 3 years now. Each day brings new info and knowledge [​IMG]

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    Two. They spend their days in the garden and nights on my couches to sleep.

    Cochin (Miss Marley) and Plymouth Rock (Miss Nunu) (they are known in Sa as kapokkie and koekkoek)
    Miss Marley had a partner Bob who died when she was little, we got Nunu as company and she just HATED her from the word go. Thing is Nunu grew up to triple Marleys size and yes now the tables have turned! Nunu bullies Marley now. Oh goodness! I'm the jail warden daily!
