    Had my ladies a week now so they are 11 weeks old. They are ISA Browns and I have 4. I've got them for my autistic children to interact with and for the eggs ;)

    Looking forward to learning from you all and chatting

    This is the coop I have


    And this is my oldest with (his) lady[​IMG]

    We got them from wwwgpotterpoultry.co.uk which is a farm near Thirsk in North Yorkshire

    Thank you for the warm welcome, Joe my oldest was most indignant by the rude chicken that pecked his finger today until I explained they don't have very good aim haha. He is now going to teach them how to target their pecks better.

    The ladies will be 12 weeks old this week, how long should I wait before I clip their wings

    I don't work with them, they are my sons. Joe is high functioning autistic and epileptic and Fred my youngest is severely autistic. They don't have a bad bone in their bodies so no worries there. Joe goes to mainstream school and gets help and Fred goes to a special needs school that specialises in autism.
