    Hi , joined a month or so ago but just put the App on my phone so thought I'd do as I was asked lol and introduce myself
    My name is Becky and I live in a village in Leicestershire in the UK with my hubby ( also known as he who moans ) , daughter and two of my 4 sons sons ( 2 have moved out )
    I have 4 cats , 1 Labrador cross and 6 chickens
    2 scots dumpy's , one with the long legged gene one with the short leg who has just started to waddle :)
    2 rescue hens ( we lost one )
    1 cream legbar
    And 1 cuckoo Maran hybrid

    Really want more scots dumpies and a few Lincolnshire buffs as I love my heritage breeds

    Hi :welcome Becky from Yorkshire UK

    Glad you could join the flock! That's a lovely flock you have there, I read an article about the scots dumpies in my monthly poultry mag a while back and they sure are nice birds. I can see why you want more of them. Please do drop by the UK thread, the link is in my signature. I'm sure there are members from your area on there. Maybe they can point you in the right direction for some near to you.

    Good luck with your flock and other animals in the future.
    Enjoy BYC :frow
