I know, I probably should have mentioned in the post (and will do in the next update) that we did check with the landlord first and it turns out he has his own chickens and is very excited that we want to rescue ex-bats! He’s totally on board, offered any tips or help we need and is now considering rescuing some ex-bats himself! Couldn’t have worked out betteryep, you've got that
At the risk of being a wet blanket, but potentially to save you heartache later, you mention the word 'landlord' on that thread; do the terms of your rental permit keeping chickens? Quite a lot of folk end up having to get rid of them because landlord objects...wouldn't want that to happen to you Hannah!
