    Hi - I'm a new member of BYC, I'm from the UK and I used to own two chickens in my garden before I moved to Canada. To my dismay, it's not so easy to own chickens here! I don't have a back yard yet, but am planning to move in the next year or two (same area) so I can have chickens again! Looks like I might have to live way in the country to do that. Anyway, it's lovely to read posts from chicken people - and I think once a chicken owner - always a chicken owner! I miss my girls (who are now living happily with my friend) but looking forward to owning chickens again!

    If there is anyone here in my area, I would be especially happy to be in touch!

    Hi and welcome to BYC from another UK transplant - great that you have joined us. Glad that you have found a place to feed your chicken-keeping addiction going - even if it is only by proxy, for the time being.

    Here's a link that will hopefully put you in touch with others nearby -
