Hey Im Awne and Ive been visiting these boards for a few years now, have the book etc. Ive recently moved into my little corner of paradise....a little cottage in a village of 5 houses and 2 farms with a small plot of land. I got myself 3 black rock chickens in April and became addicted and rescued 20 ex battery hens...have just completed the duck pond and am soon to be goat hunting. Any advice (and Im sure I will be asking for loads) will be gratefully received x

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
