    Hi,

    Hubby and I live in the UK and have recently adopted a small flock of chickens, only four of them and a very tiny rooster which they all love. We are new to looking after chickens, but it isn't hard to see why people fall in love with them- they're great. 3 of our chickens are 2 weeks away from laying and the other has lay a few eggs but has recently stopped, we think it's down to a cold spell of weather we've had, as many other people have told us their chickens stop laying in sudden cold weather here too! Anyway, thanks for setting this up and we look forward to learning more about chickens!
