    Just a brief introduction....I have five hens, three geese, two peafowl....no partridge or pear trees, but three yellow golden pheasants :) I have delved into this most excellent forum and resource on many occasions and have decided I should take the plunge and join in. So here I am. Oops, sorry, my name is Mark. (Oh, I forgot to mention the 12 mallard ducklings). Look forward to being part of this great community, cheers :)

    Hello, Mark, welcome to BYC. Sounds as if your flock is a work in progress.

    Many thanks!! Some, yes....others, well, let's just say they were thrust on me :) About to hatch (I hope) some peafowl - an egg cheeped at me this afternoon so I'm really hopeful (first timer on this one) Fingers crossed :)

    Hi :welcome Mark

    Glad you could join us here! What a lovely mix of birds you have there and I'm sure they must keep you very busy. How long have you been keeping them?

    Thank you v much :) The hens, on and off about 5-6 years, clear out of stock curtesy of the foxes....grrr. The peafowl, well, they were an indulgence, or mid life crisis, I'm not sure which, last summer and the mallards, a roadside rescue this spring. I think I'm just glutton for punishment. Still, what else would you be doing ;)

    Welcome to Backyard chickens , and ducks, and peafowl et al. I think you would also be interested in the "Other Backyard Poultry," forum above.
