    Hi everyone, we purchased a new property and moved to it only a few months ago. Unfortunately we had to leave our old chickens behind, but we know they are well looked after

    We have now started to build our new flock! To get the ball rolling, a friend of ours was able to give us 2 x Cream Legbars, 3 x Lights Sussex, 3 x Plymouth Rocks and 2 x Australorps

    We have even allowed 3 x Muscovy ducks join the girls.

    Stay tuned on some photos and updates on how they are progressing over the coming days.

  • Hi Everyone ...... I would be very interested in hearing your thoughts about the best chicken breeds to keep. I have read various articles online, but there is nothing like hearing it first hand from those who keep them right now.
