    Greetings, Darren, and :welcome! Great to have you aboard! That's quite a diverse collection of critters you maintain. In fact, as soon as I hit send I am going to Google 'badger faced sheep.'
    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC! :)

    Thanks for a very nice intro, complete with photos! LOL, redsoxs beat me to the comment about badger faced sheep...I've never heard of them before.

    Make yourself at home here, we're all here to help each other out!

    Cheers all.
    Yorkshire coop.. These have not been with me for long
    The C.B.T`S came from our local chicken farm when his sheds were emptied and the L.S X J.G Cockerel was saved from going in the freezer at a friends house.
    I have always kept shamo`s and asil and a few hybrids for eggs.

    Badger faced sheep are good for us as we live on a mountain, 1800ft above sea level and they are mountain sheep so very very hardy + the meat tastes better than any supermarket meat.

    Just thought of something you may be interested in...there is a sister site to BYC called BackYardHerds.com. You can find a link to it at the bottom of the page (in the brown section of the screen). Now you have someplace to talk chicken and sheep!
