    Hi all,

    Taking care of my mom's hens while she's working abroad for two months, love having the hens around
    and would love to take care of some of our own... Trying to get informed about coops, hens, brooding etc.

    Kind regards,
    D.

    Thanks for the warm welcome. The hens are real Dutch, Dutch Bantams. And they're very tame, and follow you around in the garden, wanting you to lift flower pots to find small creepy crawlies and slugs...

    Finding lots of info indeed. [​IMG]
