    I've used this site for information enough times...so thought I should finally get around to joining and saying hello and thanks for all the help :) Plus, it's a miserable rainy Sunday afternoon so I'm stuck indoors (makes a change from in the mud!)

    I have a mixed flock of 14 chooks - hybrid and pure bred (4 more due in a week - hurrah!), plus 6 indian runner ducks, 5 dogs and a cat...also a couple of large black pigs right now but they're not destined to be long term residents shall we say?...oh and a husband!! LOL!

    happy weekend

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] I'm with you on the weather. Though I must say it's been nice the last few days. Hope it continues [​IMG] Enjoy your pork chops and go say Hello in the Ducks section too. We have some lovely people hanging out there that you can talk duck with.
