    Hi everyone! This is my first post and first chickens!

    I have been thinking of getting chickens for a while, and had an old shed converted into a coop. I then had a neighbour offer me 5 hens to get started. I was so excited at getting my chickens, i just let him deliver what he had.

    He ended up bringing 3 2week old chicks, 1 welsummer who's about 3 (called Roast, but no she's not being eaten) and another beautiful black rock (called nuggets).

    I'll post the problems they have on the right bit [​IMG] but i think he saw me coming [​IMG]

    Im in West Yorkshire, Uk and studying law, but really want to be a farmer [​IMG]
