    Charente Maritime, France
    Hi! Just thought I would introduce myself. I live in the Charente Maritime in France and started with 3 hens initially. I was given a Cock and more recently I've introduced (over time) 6 new Hens so in total I have 10! In terms of the breeds, I have to admit I am not entirely sure as they are all different but certainly a Sussex. I also believe they have different breed names for them here in France.
    I found out about BackYardChicked by googling and I am now glad to be here and to share what I now find to be an interesting hobby.
    In terms of myself I also cycle and from a work aspect I am a Criminology Consultant having recently retired from the UK Police Service.
    I look forward to learning more and thus helping my own chickens to have an enjoyable life.
    Best wishes,
    John
