    Hi there, I haven't had chickens very long but I'm obsessed already - just ask my husband! I sort of just fell into keeping two Silkie Bantam cockerels to begin with, since the gamekeeper at the deer park I work at showed up one day with two dog crates of cockerels a local vet had handed over which would have been euthanised if they couldn't be rehomed. I only really wanted hens, but when i sat down to look at these boys I ended up falling in love with my two, Percival and Reginald!

    So that was about 2ish months ago, and just last week we finally got around to getting a bunch of hens for them! The hens are all different bantams, a Light Sussex, Scots Dumpy, Scots Grey, German Longshans, and two Welsummers. We're wanting to breed some Silkie crosses eventually!

    I just joined tonight because the Light Sussex, Lily, has been escaping! I posted on "Managing Your Flock" board about this, please read it and give me some advice if you can!!
