Evening all I'm new to the site and can't wait to get learning. Who'd have thought chickens were so interesting! I'm a single mother with a job that has me dealing with unpleasant topics all day and my 15 minutes with my feathered family in the afternoon at the back steps before I walk them home and put them to bed has well and truly become my favourite part of the day. I have bantams, your run of the hill hens and my fav.... Silkies. Hoping to learn enough that I might be able to try my hand at breaking the silkies.
