    Hello fellow poultry people!
    Been keeping chickens for a couple of years now after the fateful decision to keep 3 chicks that had been hatched in the school room. Three brown hybrids who have been star layers and great characters. Last year I added two more; a lovely, and oddly affectionate, Columbian Blacktail and a little (unusually little) Cream Legbar.
    They are all in a covered run, as large as will fit in the yard of a small terraced house. That's all I have room for -which is fortunate as I love them to bits and would aquire maybe too many if I had the space!

    Hi and welcome from another Brit, via Kenya -glad that you have joined us [​IMG] I know what you mean about the consequences of having more space and chicken maths - I'd be in a whole heap of trouble if we had more land [​IMG] Having said that, i did not stop me buying 11 more two month old birds yesterday [​IMG].

    All the best

    Thanks all :) Here are some pictures of the crew.
    Teabag and Betty. Teabag had a lash egg mishap recently followed by a molt but seems well at the moment.
    This is Aerial my CLB.
    Blaze won't pose for photos!
    Neither will Brownie usually.
    That's Brownie having a dust bath.
    The coop. We did have them roaming the whole garden last winter with a smaller roost but they obliterated everything!
