Hello from Suffolk

Post by suffolkcabby » 20 Feb 2018, 11:13

Hi, were newish keepers starting out in 2016 with 3 Pekin bantams from our local pub's garden where the flock free ranges. We sadly lost a girl last summer before our eyes one Sunday morning to Mr Fox. Then in mid summer unable to break either broody we tried 6 fertiles, 5 hatched :) 4 boys :( . Being town birds we dealt with the matter and purchased two little girls to join the elder 2 and our own hatched girl. Dont know why we didnt do this sooner. Hoping to be a regular on the board but I have joined with a question, which I will post later.

If you have a Google Account then use their photo service... you can upload and share from there.

Dropbox?
