Hi, my name is Gillian and I emigrated from Australia 9 years ago. I have been living in the country near Banbridge for just over a year now. My partner John bought me home 2 baby Welsummer chicks as a surprise just over a year ago. My flock has now grown to 22 chickens. 18 hens and 4 roosters. I have hatched various chicks and brought them up. I have Welsummer hens, Millefluer pekins, Black Pekins, Rhode Island Red, Light Sussex, Hatched X Light Sussex and Millefluer and also RIR and Millefluer. Latest editions are White Bantam Silkie hen, Goldtop hen and a Cream Legbar hen. I really have to stop breeding and buying now as I am already up to two coops and a run and try and let them all out daily for as long as possible to free range. I love my birds and find them so funny and a great hobby.
