Hi everyone! Obviously, I am new to BYC I am a new chicken owner, and took over the chickens from the previous owners of our house. Now working our butts off to getting them free of parasites, coop improvement for the time being (once the people-house is liveable, it's the turn for the chickens' new house) and their happiness. I did study Animal Management (like for working in a shelter, or Zoo) but there way is more to keeping chickens than we learned at school I live in a little village in the middle of the Netherlands, called Andel. I have a varied flock of 3 hybrids and some other mixes. 9 including the rooster. We also have 2 Maine Coon girl cats, Faizah and Lindy, and a shorthaired guy called Swiffer/ Next year when the new coop is ready, I want Sebright and Barnevelder chickens. Luckily, there is enough room for them. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
