    Hello everyone,

    I'm being good and introducing myself just as I was told to (that doesn't happen very often, so count yourselves lucky!)

    I've never kept chickens but since I saw an interview on the BBC about enriched cages a few months ago, I've fallen in love with the idea of having chickens as pets. I now spend a fair deal of my free time reading about the various aspects of chicken keeping and find it all fascinating. Now that I'm moving into my first house, I'm seriously considering starting a small back-garden flock and will probably start with ex-bats.

    I've also been visiting the chickens in my local park for a few days to witness first-hand how they behave. I'll get off now though because I have a question to post concerning their health, which is why I finally signed up.

    Nice to meet you all,

    Buckles
