    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! I'm just over the water from you England. That's a nice mix of birds you have there. Have you been keeping them for long?

    Be sure to ask any questions, everyone here to help. Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    G’Day from down under Robert [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Thanks for the welcome, we went right around the world pretty quickly there.

    Brewster is indeed a Bantam. We have young kids and the Bantams are a bit less intimidating to handle. They're all very well behaved. They have a good sized run, but our coop is quite small and better suited for Bantams.

    Don't you know if we'll ever do chicks. One LSB will clock regularly but we haven't let her sit on the eggs yet.

    We have had the flock for less than a year. We got them for the fun of it, the eggs are a bonus, as they have become good layers. It's good for the children to do some looking after too.

    Nice to meet you Robert. It's always great when kids get involved. Banties fit in everywhere. My friend has 2 serama hens and a silkie hen as house chickens. Hope you will enjoy BYC as much as we do.
