    Hi everyone,

    I live in the united Arab emirates where we have a garden in the desert to keep a few animals and camp. Most people here keep goats and camels for milk and also chickens and other poultry as pets. We have a very hot climate in summer with an average of 110F at noon.

    I started keeping chickens and pigeons with friends since childhood. Slowly the hobby evolved now I keep many kinds of birds and some animals in our garden. we also keep some of our native desert birds and animals.

    Its great I get to join this forums to share experience and chat with everyone.

    Thanks and regards.[​IMG]

    3 chickens
    3 turkeys
    4 chukar partridge
