Hello everyone My name is Linda and I live in the countryside of Suffolk, England, UK. I have been keeping chickens for about seven years now & am totally addicted! I currently have about 35 but the incubator is about to go on for a new season, so that will increase again very soon. I keep large fowl pure breeds especially Croad Langshans, Orpingtons (lavender & silver birchen + another little project), barred Plymouth Rocks, French Marans and Cream Legbars. I also have two black Labrador Retrievers, an 18-year-old cat and a (sometimes not-so) understanding husband. I have been onto this site a few times recently having Googled some poultry colours, so I thought I should join in the fun. Interesting reading - some things the same, some different, but the passion is universal!
