    Hi- My daughter and I have just set ourselves up as Harts Happy Hens. We are trying to focus on Hamburgh bantams , but having started off 6 years ago with Rescue chooks from BHWT, we now have 20 hens of different varieties which we show.
    So we have silver pencilled and silver spangled Hamburghs. My daughter is a junior Hamburgh judge.
    We have black and a white silkie, 2 Orpingtons, a speckled sussex, a Light Sussex x Dorking, three RIR x Susses- (the Curry Girls, great layers), plus 4 x Silkie x Polands and 3 x Cream Laced Wyandotte bantams! Yes we are mad!
    One special chap is Beepy our lone Cockerel who hatched and lived in my home office last year.
    Also have a dog, 3 cats, and two snakes! Live in Somerset. I do agricultural PR and work from home and often write bout chickens, as well as pigs and plants!

    G’Day from down under Harts Happy Hen [​IMG] Welcome!

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
