    This site looks great. time to introduce myself.
    I am from Hammarsdale, South Africa, (close to Durban). Been married for 14 years been in the relationship for 19 years and have two girls 11 and 13 years old who are avid horse riders. We run a horse livery and have 18 horses that we look after.

    We have a small holding where we are trying to self sustain, with 3 bullocks, 2 sheep, 4 pigs and a few layers.
    I have also started to produce chickens for public sale and currently have 350 chickens growing, another 100 being delivered next week.
    We live on 20 acres of land in a rural farming area.
    I was a city slicker till about 3 years ago so this is all still pretty new to me.

    Welcome to BYC! You have come to the coolest place on the internet for chicken knowledge.

    I started with chickens last summer and the people of BYC have been great. This year I have tried hatching and buying chicks for even more chickeny joy. Please visit my BYC Page for my blog links that you may find informative or amusing.
