    Hello everyone,
    I am new to chicken keeping, I have eight chooks, they consist of 2 Sussex cross, a few Bantams x's and then just backyard scratchers, each with it's own quirky habits and they bring me a lot of fun.
    I live here in the Dordogne, South West France with husband, black Labrador and the chooks all are free range, including husband Lol, (not really) I
    have been very impressed by your fantastic web site,all the info is so welcome to a newbie like myself, especially so being in a foreign speaking country as it's not always possible to get info from the locals when your language abilities are lacking as mine are, although I keep on learning, but it's a slow process.
    I look forward to making friends and hopefully getting advice from you people who really know your stuff.
