    Hi! My name is Alex, and i own a single hen that was abandoned near my house. I have taken it in and given it a good quality home, and named her Apricot. I'm new to chickens, and i'm hoping to get more experience through this website. I'm not sure of her breed, so i'll try and get that sorted at some point. Thanks for reading, and i hope to make some good friends here!

    Thank you so much for your welcomes!
    Unfortunately I am on a budget, and I'm unable to afford a second hen, so I'll attend to her as much as possible, and make sure she's happy.
    As for her breed, I think she may be an Easter Egger, but i'm not sure.
    (also, just found emojis!! :thumbsup:old)
