    It has just crossed my mind that all the members i have seen on here so far are on the other side of the pond.

    Hi i'm Reg & I live in Luton, England.

    I'm just about to do a mad thing. Yes Chickens, been saying i would for 30 years now i'm 54 its time.

    Work starts this weekend if it don't snow !

    So are there many members from uk on here ? Not that it matters chickens are chickens where ever they are I guess.

    But if somebody asks for advice on what to do if a mountain Lion keeps taking your birds i'm going to have to pass we dont get to many lions in Luton.[​IMG]

    Anyway good to be here.[​IMG]

    Yes there are some fellow chicken lovers on here from your 'neck of the woods'! I can't think of any of their names right now, but I know I have seen some. Welcome! I just my first chicks last April and have had fun with them all summer. I am looking forward to getting some more this spring. Enjoy your new hobby!

    A warm welcome from an imp in Washington state.

    There are lots of members on BYC from England and other parts of Europe. Where is Luton?

    Imp- I'm boxing up a Mt. Lion to send to you. Did you realize joining was going to be such an adventure? [​IMG]

    As far as I know there are quite a few members from your side of the pond. [​IMG]

    As far as you joining BYC I am not sure it is the wisest decision. The people here are quite the enablers. If you ask should I get say... another 5 chickens they are all gonna say you need them. [​IMG] debiraymond is one of the biggest enablers here!!! [​IMG] Its worse than an alcholic asking if he should have a drink. Most people would say no.

    BYCers always say you need more chickens. [​IMG]

    Welcome to the group. You will love it.
