    [​IMG] Rob! [​IMG] Glad you found us. this is a great site. Any questions, just ask! Make sure you make that coop big enough for lots and lots of chickens. 5 just won't do it!!

    Welcome, I am new here too and I am in Wales in the UK, and this site has been brilliant. You will find so much support and to be honest pure entertainment here, the people on this site are magic, and chickens are addictive, believe me.
