    Hi :welcome

    I'm from East Yorkshire too!! :D Sorry to hear you had to rehome your friendly boy :hugs Are you not allowed to keep a cockerel? Have you been keeping chickens long? I too started out with a couple of warrens and I have not looked back since. Please do pop by the UK thread if you get chance ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/655508/uk-member-please-say-hi/0_30

    Your most welcome :D

    Such a shame you can't keep a cockerel. Where in East Yorkshire are you? I'm near Goole :/

    My sister lives in Beverley. She has a flat near the job shop. She's not chicken inclined though.
