    Hello I would like to introduce myself. My name is Christine and I am from Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire England. I am 56yrs old and have just got my lovely girls (I am a first time chicken keeper) on April the 19th 2010. My boyfriend bought me the chooks for my birthday (not til August........long story) with the coop and all, a use it or lose it deal. I have 2 leghorns, one Esmarelda and the other Henryetta, and 2 columbian blacktails, one Stevie and the other spike (an even longer story).

    We live in the city and keep our hens free ranging in the backgarden. I have always wanted to keep chickens for their eggs, but I could never understand why people thought that they were good pets, until now. I love my pretty ladies and would not part with them now for love nor money.

    I will probably bore the pants off you all with my silly and incessant questions, but I am of the opinion that if you don't ask you won't know, so I am saying sorry now, to save doing it in the future.

    I am off now to go and peruse the rest of the site, but I hope to be chatting with you soon.

    Christine:cool:

    A big [​IMG] from Pennsylvania, USA! You'll love it here at BYC! Being a new-to-chickens person myself, I have had so much fun and found so much great information here...don't know what I'd do without it.

    Can't wait to see pictures of your ladies and coop!
