A lady came to mine this afternoon all the way from Whitby. She had spent 8 weeks trying to find a poultry breeder in Yorkshire. Luckily a friend of hers in Sheffield gave her my number - but it was a 4 hour round trip just to buy 2 hens.
If there is anybody in the York/Harrogate area thinking of selling some chickens, please do - apparantly there is nobody up there who does. I don't mind missing the odd few people 4 hours is a long way to go for a couple of hens (hope they settle in OK Yvonne!!)
