Hi all, I've been keeping chickens for a few years now and have been lurking around the forum for a while as it's got so much information! I currently keep ex-battery hens, Norfolk Greys and Wyandottes. I'm hoping to acquire some Light Sussex hatching eggs this week as we found out that it makes a lot of difference to how friendly the hens turn out to be! We were very lucky with all of our hens, but my friend was not quite as lucky. I raised the Wyandottes myself from week old chicks, and am now really looking forward to hatching my own.
