Finally, the Ryeland Flock Book Society has sent me a form to upgrade my membership to "flock-owning". So Juno, Jura and Jinx are now the foundation stock of the Rosedean flock of pedigree Ryelands. I don't think they are awfully impressed, though.

It's funny how their personalities are showing through now they've settled in. Jinx was really shy and skittish when we got them but she's now the boldest and the most vocal. She also has a very distinctive voice - actually, I think I can recognise all three now.

Now that they are "official", I should start halter training them just in case I'm brave enough to show them next year! I've bought a halter so should make a start - they're only small so what can go wrong...

Keep up the good work and keep up posted on who the trainning goes.

been following the progress although I am a townie!! Really, really want some chickens and I have the room but can I commit??? Detached with a big garden but by a river and quite close neighbours - any danger of rats etc? Enthusiastic but cautious! Would love your views x

Lynne, have a search for Eglu - they are self-contained hen houses which make it really easy to keep hens in your sort of situation.

Some people on the forum use them - why not drop in and speak to them?
