    Hey I'm Joe, new to this forum but excited to get to know everyone and everyone's views!

    Although I do not own chickens I am completely obsessed and really looking forward to the day I get some! I am studying Animal Biology at Nottingham Trent University, England, and most of my assignments end up geared towards poultry in some form lol :)

    I am thinking about doing my dissertation on chickens but need to narrow it down! Someone suggested I do it on Egg Peritonitis, but I am not sure yet. I am all about welfare of poultry, and all farm animals! love dogs as well!, I have 2 dwarf hamsters called Iggy and Ozzy too, and 2 Border Collies at home!

    I am SUPER careful with what I eat, I do eat meet but only if I know it has been raised in a way I find acceptable! Also I only buy organic free range eggs, woodland ones too! as you can guess I don't eat much meat then because I can't afford to

    So yeah that's me, hope to get to know some of you!

    Joe
