:evil: argh! I have always said I wouldn't get chickens. Several people mentioned it when we moved as our garden is significantly bigger and it was in the deeds that we couldn't have them at our old house.

Since seeing this post, I keep thinking. ' hmmm maybe we should get chickens!' Argh! What are you doing to me!!!!! :hohoho:

I like the idea of the eggs, but I don't like the idea of chicken poo everywhere and rats are a general problem in the area so that puts me off too.
I mentioned it to DH and he said if we had a bit of land he'd get some sheep! Well i never expected him to say that!!! How cool would that be!

@clothmama. The large black speckled one on the left is Karen the maran. The middle grey one (Korma) is a grey partridge Wyandotte and the little crazy haired one is Kevin the Polish bantam.
