    hi :)

    Things have been quite lately which is not good because then we normally have a big one. I just try and not think about it :) Chickens are good to put my mind too lol.

    Lovely to meet you Mahonri

    Hi guys! Carla here:) Thanks for telling me about this forum eksterhuis!! Nice to have somewhere to go so I don't feel like the only crazy chicken lady aroud!;) Even nicer to know their are some others here from ChCh!

    I have only had chickens for around 6mths...but absolutely love them! We currently have two orphington cross girls, two silver laced wyandottes, silkies and some baby pekins. My silkies are great broodies so have hatched eggs and also put day olds under them...this is addictive I need to live on a farm!!lol

    Absolutely love the little pekins! They have been handled so much so are really friendly! My kids love giving them cuddles:) I think raising them from little chicks and handling them lots is definately the way to go!

    What kind of hens do you have Nicola?
