    Hi everyone,
    I've been lurking a bit on here and trying to learn as much as I can but felt a little rude so thought I'd introduce myself
    :frow
    We've made use of a wasted space in our garden that used to be an aviary added more wire to make it (fingers crossed) fox proof again and I built a flat packed coop from amazon.
    We've got just two little POL Dutch Bantams, Chelsea & Henrietta at the moment (given by a generous friend) but hoping to add to flock soon. We've also got a little Border Terrier, Maisie & a hamster.
    DH said no to getting chickens originally but even he is enjoying their little antics already! We have a little boy who keeps thanking me for 'his' chickens, and couldn't wait to tell his teacher all about them (even though he forgot their names when asked) :lau
    Well that's about it I think so hello from me in Wales, any Dutch Bantam tips or pointers on mixing bantams with other chickens would be much appreciated.
    Thank you for what seems to be a very helpful and friendly site.

    [​IMG] I think if you put "Dutch bantams," in the search box it may lead you to a thread about them.

    Welcome to BYC, and good luck with your bantams. Dutch are pretty little birds.
