HI I'm a mum in South Africa who has ALWAYS wanted to keep chickens, for as long as I can remember (probably from the times as a little girl whose friends raised chickens on their farm) I have 2 bantams - a mommy and baby. Baby is about 4 months old now. I had 5, one died as a little chick a few weeks old and 2 turned out to be roosters (an issue in our neighbourhood so they are now at the animal farm close to me). I really wanted to keep the roosters, but I also know that 2 roosters and 2 hens is not a good mix. I have to keep them caged because I have 2 dogs and 3 cats and the dog keeps chasing them. Looking forward to chatting!!
