    Hi BYC

    I am a new member from South Africa. I had a couple of chickens went I was at school an that was about 13yra ago. But I am back in the chicken game just bought 6 chicken round about 3 months old so not sure how many hens and how many roosters I have at th emoment but time wil tell.
    I found this site while just scanning the net for info on free range chickens and eggs.
    I hope to learn a lot from all the members.

    A warm summers greeting from the tip of Africa

    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] I used to live in SA and we have friends in East London. Post some pics of your flock in the What Breed Or Gender is This? section and we may be able to tell you what breeds and genders they are.
