Hi everyone. I have used BYC forum for ages to answer my questions about chickens, so thought I'd better actually join up. I've had ex batts for about 3 years now, with the occasional addition of a 'posh' girl. I currently have 4 ex batts (Matilda, Gloria, Ermintrude and Violet) and a Black Rock called Clarissa. I also have 1 cat (Taz), 2 hamsters (Vladimir Splatowski and Dougal McLoobrush) and 2 fish (One Eye and Spot). Oh yes, and a husband called Tim, a son called Harry (14) and a stepdaughter Kate (13). I am looking forward to being a member of a community as batty about chooks as I am!
