    Keeper of the hens

    Hey, check out Elmsley farm.

    They are a petting farm (I think it's quite close to Leeds, but my geography is terrible...) and they have a variety of breeds of chickens there. They often hatch out chicks and are willing to sell them, ranging from very young chicks to point of lay pullets. Just ask at the shop - specify you want live chickens though because they brought us a frozen one!!! :rolling:

    We got Milly from there, she was about 10 weeks old (sold as POL though so watch out for that!) and only cost £5! There were about 50 chicks for us to choose from in one pen, and several more too, but that was in summer time.
    Just had a look and the post code for the farm is an LS one so in Leeds :)

    :welcome:to Hencam.
    I don't have hens, just love chatting with the great bunch of people on here.
    I live in Gildersome, which can't be far from you!

    Hencam HQ is just the other side of Bradford but I've never been.

    At the top of each page on here is GOOGLEMAP DIRECTORY so you can have a look to see where we all are. Some members are even at other sides of the world. You might like to put you own pin on.

    Ollie, my friend from uni lives in Gildersome - we went to her wedding and they had fireworks and a little brass band. We stayed in an old brickworks, I think it was. Puddings that surely no human could eat without cholesterol leaking from their ears...:)

    The Brickworks is in the next village from here. I haven't been for a long time. They used to have a "Soft play" area for the smaller children, we had some lovely birthday parties for them there.
