Hello from West Sussex
« on: December 11, 2012, 11:17:14 am »
Hi,
Stumbled upon this site many months ago and have decided that now I am on the cusp of leaving the Armed Forces and turning my wife's horse grazing into a part small holding (she doesn't know yet) that I would join to benefit from others who have taken this path. Whilst having dabbled in poultry (ex-caged hens for eggs and conscience) I haven't had the time to devote to anything more...so this is the start of my journey and hopefully I'll have a few stories to share along the way ... from raising weaners to growing lettuce. Please stand by for loads of questions...some stupid I am sure.

Hello from sunny Carnoustie, good to see you here and look forward to hearing more.  :wave:

And the only stupid questions are the ones you don't ask.  :)

I hail from West Sussex before I migrated north - whereabouts are you?

Hi and thanks for all your welcome messages...been a busy period with the cold and wet over Christmas but looking forward to a good week where I can get some prep work done. Lost all my chickens just before Christmas to a fox - still unsure as to how he got in the pen but alas he took them all. On the plus side, as they were ex-caged they at least had a good 8 months of free ranging and fresh air.
Happy New Year everyone.
