Hi iar frith, good to meet you, welcome to the forum. Sorry my iPad doesn’t know how to do a circumflex over your name. (Its autospeller also strongly suggested you must be called Ian, but I expect you get a lot of that.)
Anyway, your flock sounds interesting. Do you breed your own? What sorts do you keep? Looking forward to hearing more about your setup.

Hi Speckled Hen. Looking forward to seeing some pictures of your hens and very glad that Maidstone and Deal are a good distance apart!
you manage to put the circumflex on the a?
For those who won't know, it affects the pronunciation of iar by changing where the emphasis should be. Oh and Welsh usually puts the noun before the adjective, so literally translated our new member would be "hen speckled".
(Well with a name like mine I ought
