I went to see a friend who was giving me a couple of marsh daisies this morning and what funny little things they are!

BUT.....I came back with 2 marsh daisies, 2 Orpingtons and a Polish bantam  ??? ??? :D :D :D

Well he did need homes for them  :D :D

I will post pics tomorrow as we are rushing out now for a family dinner but my flock has now just doubled lol

Hi im fairly new to keeping chickens,ive had them for about 6 months now and i never knew how many different wonderful breeds there were so once you get a couple and realised how much character they have then u want more lol   :tongue2:   Me and my partner wanted just a couple of chickens so we cud have fresh eggs so we went to look at some chicks and came away with 6 lol but they were all different colours lol i didnt want the normal brown laying ones.We now have 30 and 10 ducks lol

Hi Dennis,  :D  Its addictive i never thought it would be,everyone ive spoke to has said that they ended with more than what they wanted,i made the mistake also of going to a poulty auction so i was bidding against the butchers.  :mad:  i won most of them  :D
