Am new to all this as just got 6 chickens (well in June) Still learning and have already asked about my Peggy who has a bad leg. The other girls are Pearl, Charlie, Bertha, Rosie and Dora. The grandchildren love the girls and they are all getting better with each other too.  My grand daughter is only two and "be quiet and dont run to them" doesnt seem to mean a lot to her though my 6 year old grandson is very good and patient and is thrilled when he is "investigated" by the girls.  Spent today picking blackberries then making blackberry gin and blackberry whiskey - not tried them before but the gin one is bottled and the bits I tasted were yummy.

 

Hope to get to know some of you soon and swap any tips.

Welcome Denise, might have said that already - I'm easily confused at the moment whistle. We had chickens many years ago when we lived in England, just three but we loved them and they lived in an ark that moved around the garden. Next year we hope to get some more arks built and then we can have chickens again. Wish we had blackberries, we did finally find a blackberry growing in a friend's garden - the first in Latvia that I had seen since we moved here three years ago - and so we nabbed a root and it has taken so hoping for some sort of a crop next year.cheers
