    hi everyone,
    i have visited this site dozens of times over the past months and finally decided to join your great community.i love reading the posts. so helpful.
    i have no experience with keeping poultry but i am ready to learn.
    i am 54 and always kept pets such as dogs(my favourite) i have a 10 year old english springer called millie and a 8 year old german short haired pointer called maisie, also two cats called wonky and aspin.in the past i have owned rabbits.hamsters,gerbils,mice,.and many more..
    i live in a semi rural area of south wales with my wife and 3 children along with all our pets.
    i will soon start posting asking questions and hopefully be able to own my own poultry and contribute to the wonderful site..

    regards
    chris
