Hello Everyone...Another Newbie here!!
« on: September 30, 2010, 21:32 »
Hi everyone, i bought my first 4 hens on Saturday & they are wonderful.
I then came across this site Sunday evening and it answered all the questions i had about my chooks, so just wanted to say thank you to all of you who make it such a great site :)

I have looked through the breeders section also as i'm looking to get a Silkie or Bearded Silkie & a Polish Bantam to complete my little chook family but i've had no luck so far. If anyone knows of any available please could you let me know?? Apologies if i'm not allowed to ask that, i couldn't see anything saying i couldn't.

Hi there - I'm picking up my new hens tomorrow. I've spent the last few weeks getting as much info from this site as possible and getting everything I think I need. I'm sure everything will go to plan...not! Can't wait to share my experiences with you all :D

At the moment it's going to be a Columbian Black Tail, a Bluebell, a White Star and a Speckledy. But that could change. I'll let you know :)

Hello Shoegirl and welcome to the site.

If you click on Poultry Pages at the top of the screen and then scroll down you will find a link (in blue) Poultry Suppliers.  You may find a local breeder there.

Good luck

Kym

Welcome to this site, which is full of mad chook lovers. Chook keeping is the best thing Ive ever done, even though it can bring heartache and lots of worry. However, the joys that our feathered friends bring, plus the eggs ouf course, easily outweigh any sadness that may occur.
