Hi to all, my name is Dave and I am very new to all this and please expect a few very silly questions in the coming weeks and months....

I am an English guy living in Holland and looking forward to getting my chickens soon...nothing too much about 3 birds....am thinking a Black Sussex, White Susssex and a ISA Brown...3 birds should keep the g/f and I in eggs and be fairly manageable

OK for now

Dave.

Hi Dutchy
I'm in the UK.
I have 2 warren hens and got 23 eggs in January and 28 in Frbruary, most of them laid by one hen. So far this month I have had 20 eggs. Each hen has laid half.
Enjoy your hens.

Oh boy! Check out Brabanter colors for me! So far as I know there are only gold and cream in the US. The main club is Dutch. Send us some pics!

Hi Dutchy! Welcome. Where are you in the Netherlands? My grandfather's family came from Zeeland. His nickname was Dutch!

Welcome to the board! What part of the country are you in?

My dad moved to the US from the NL, and I still have family there. Haven't been there in many years, though.

Thanks again for the welcomes.....


I started building my chicken run yesterday and we have had storms , snow, hail, rain for the past 24 hours ....wrecked all my work...not that I am that good at DIY anyhow
....my run lays in tatters at the moment....

So I was going to buy my birds this saturday...but it'll have to wait a week or so now....

Cheers
Dave.

Is DLHunicorn in Netherlands? She (Diana) is so helpful to us with health issues in our chickens. So knowledgeable.
