    Hi all,
    9months ago I was (JUST)a mother to my five children, my 2 dogs and 2 cat and a wife.... But I couldn't stop there I had a clever idea as we live in the sticks lol, and went out and got 4 chickens, just 4 big fat brown hens that had there own personalitys, my kids fell in love with them with in seconds so did I... But sadly we lost 2 of them, we kept strong and this time took my children with me to buy more. We came home with 4 yes another 4 lol, but this time these were 8 weeks old, now 22weeks ish old. This is the start of my life with chickens and I'm loving it... So hello to all and thanks for having me, and I welcome all knowledge :D

    Next time "accidentally" buy a rooster and then you can still keep your promise about not "buying" any more [​IMG] I have been known in the past to have selective amnesia when it comes to telling my wife one of my hens is sitting [​IMG]

    Great to have you onboard and good luck!
